Standing Stones Canmore
Also known as The Thorn

To the west of the village of Fowlis Wester, standing in a field by a burn, are three megaliths. Two standing together are large - six to eight feet high - and the third, a little downslope from the others, is enormous - perhaps fifteen feet by fifteen feet by six feet. This latter is prostrate and cracked into two, with cup marks in one surface.
