Ballymeanoch Stone Rows
Kilmartin, Argyll OS Map
Stone Rows Canmore

At Ballymeanoch, in the Kilmartin Valley, are two rows of stones. One has two stones---a third stone with a hole pierced through it stood with them until some time in the last one hundred years---and the other has four stones. Together they form part of what was a large megalithic avenue. Within a very small distance of these stones are the remains of a henge monument - now ploughed almost flat - and a burial cairn. A few hundred yards away is the burial cairn of Dunchraigaig and the cup-and-ring marked rocky outcrop at Baluachraig.
