W 3437 4265 (OS) Diameter 8.6m (meas.)
Visited Aug 1998

Ballvackey stands on flat pasture about 100m from the Fealge river and just across the R599 from the hill that gave the circle its name. A multi-stone circle, we counted seven stones standing on our visit, the original count was probably eleven. Stone height ranges from 0.9m to1.5m, the circle is poorly graded. A radially placed stone stands at the ENE, this is probably the southern portal stone, but it is not very tall. Across the circle from the portal is a wide, flat-topped stone at the WSW, this is much whiter than any of the other stones, and is probably the axial stone.
