Standing Stone Canmore
Also known as East Muirkirk
This seven-foot stone stands in the middle of a sloping field near the main road through Muirkirk. Ayrshire, having been a successful agricultural area for a long time, has been cleared of many of its standing stones and stone circles over the centuries for the benefit of farming. As a result, the area is relatively short of ancient monuments. This stone in the northeastern corner of the region is a fine exception to the rule.
