Dervaig, Isle of Mull, Argyll OS Map
Stone Row Canmore
Also known as Dervaig B; Kilmore

This row of five stones, impressive despite the fact that three of the stones are fallen, stands in an area rich in prehistory.

When I visited in 2003 and 2010 the stones were beautifully set in a clearing amongst the trees of a forestry plantation. In 2014 the trees had been cleared and it was a bit of a Forestpocalypse. Not quite so pretty.

All of the stones are (or would have been) about 2.4-2.5 metres (around eight feet) tall. Several show signs of tooling. Stone D has marks that can be seen as a skull and cross-bones - however it is not clear whether this is just a trick of the eye or remains of later carving. Clearly the design is unlikely to be contemporary with the construction of the stone row!
