Ballymeanoch Henge
Kilmartin, Argyll
Henge; Cist Canmore

Often missed, this henge monument is certainly worth a look if you are visiting the stone rowes at Ballymeanoch.

The ditch is mostly filled in and the bank is largely eroded away, but they can still be seen to enclose a circular area some 40 metres (130 feet) in diameter. The central area is stoney with evidence of there having been a very large cairn there at one time. Near the centre of the circle are two cists, one still with its capstone. Around the edge of the circle are a small number of low earthfast stones that may have formed part of a kerb.
