At Clune Hill the circumstances were
almost as frustrating as those at Blue Cairn, namely an interesting site with
dense photography-defying bracken cover, ankle turning boulders, and a deep
central pit preventing a truly central panorama. Things are not quite so bad
here however, three circle stones (2 NW, 1SE), and the two flankers are
erect, three more fallen stones exist, and the
recumbent, although seemingly slightly displaced, is erect. The circle stones
are of red granite and the 3m long recumbent of grey granite, this weighing an
estimated 9 tons plus. The internal ring cairn is much in evidence, although its
central area appears distorted.
A second cairn with a 2m dia. roughly circular, kerbed internal space exists immediately to the east of the circle, this appears to be about 9 -10m in diameter, but the bracken cover made accurate size assessment and photography impossible.
