Ballochroy Standing Stones

Tarbert, Argyll
Stone Row

The three stones in this row stand 6, 11 and 12 feet tall.

They line up to the southwest in the direction of the midwinter sunset. Unusually their broad faces lie across the row rather than with the row. Sighting along the broad face of the stones to the northwest you find yourself looking to where the midsummer sun sets behind the Paps of Jura - very distinctly shaped mountains on the Isle of Jura.

Looking back the way, the stones make a line to the northeast that indicates the most northerly point that the moonrise reaches.
