Beltany Stone Circle

Map Reference: C255005 (2255, 4005)

About 2.5km S of Raphoe, in Tops townland, is Beltany Stone Circle. This is a large low platform, about 50cm high, defined by a circle of 64 stones. There may have been originally about 80 stones.

The diameter of the circle is about 45m. There is a large number of half-buried stones within the circle, some of which may belong to an original cairn.

The standing stones are of various sizes and one of them has a large number of small cupmarks on the inner surface. To the SE of the circle is an outlying standing stone about 2m high.
