Ballynoe Stone Circle

We went to Tyrella beach yesterday, and I remembered that it is practically within spitting distance of Ballynoe Stone Circle, County Down's rather modest answer to Stonehenge and Avebury.

F not too deterred by the bovine guardians of the stones:

His mother and grandmother coming to see:

Mysterious cupmarks in one of the stones:

Nobody else there except the cows - and it is easy to find.

very nice pictures. I'm irrationally fascinated by stone circles.

Those are lovely. I've been obsessed by Avebury for years. When I lived in London I wen to visit them often.

I haven't been to Tyrella beach in nearly 40 years. Thanks for the reminder. I remember it used to have a large radar dish for the nearby RAF base, which is gone now.

Lovely photos, especially the first one with the mountains in the distance.

The last time I was down that way for a hill walk, a wrong turning led to the unexpected discovery of Wateresk Dolmen. I haven't been to Ballynoe in years, have to change that.
