Moymore Stone Circles

Map Reference: H711745 (2711, 3745)

The stone circles and alignments at Moymore are set within a low semicircular platform and interrupted by a field boundary. There are at least seven complete circles and traces of three more as well as two alignments. The stones are generally low except in the alignments.

A cairn at the southern extremity may be field clearance and may hide more structures. The largest circles are about 6m diameter. Excavation has shown that the platform is less than 1m high and measures 27m by 42m.

There are nine circles and two alignments. The two largest circles are 11m and 13m diameter. Just to the east are four more circles and a possible megalithic tomb. These features are largely obscured by the field boundary.
