Standing Stones Canmore
Also known as Creag Losigte; Cnoc Pollphail, Low Stillaig

On the south-western tip of the Cowal Peninsula, with marvelous views over Loch Fyne, stand these three megaliths.

One stands alone by the side of a track leading to Eilean Aoidhe. It is about six feet tall.

Less than half a mile away and visible on the skyline in a col between two hills, stand the other two megaliths: one over ten feet tall, the other a broken stump.

Within the same square mile are several cairns and several outcrops of cup-marked rocks.

One of the stones is said to have faint Ogham lettering carved into it, but I could find none and the CANMORE database states that they could find no such markings, either.
