Nether Largie Stone Setting
Kilmartin, Argyll
Stone Setting Canmore

This fascinating site consists of five large standing stones in a stretched X shape, with a setting of several smaller stones close to the large central stone, along with a number of outlying standing stones (one of which is still standing).

The central stone is heavily cup marked.

The southernmost stones are each around nine feet tall.

A group of smaller stones, up to three feet tall, are arranged 80 feet to the north.

Close by is another nine-foot stone with some forty cup markings carved on its southern face.

Another 80 feet to the north are another pair of nine-foot stones.
