It is quiet even in the middle of summer, i feel very lucky to now live nearby and be able to walk to it, and just hang out a bit and then maybe pop though bodrifty settlement and up to 9 maidens of boskednan [which is clearly seen from mulfra], it's like walking though time.
Yes thanks, last time i was there i saw it [before i saw it in mm], so didn't know it was a fallen standing stone [it stood out because of the burning], but from there i saw more stones so i carried on and just before the hill goes more steeply down there is a lovely hut circle and enclosure site, it's only a few hundred yards from the quoit, it's not the one in your photo and i've visited lots around the hill but further away, this one is so close, the hut circle seemed more like a late neolithic bronze age one than an iron age one, just maybe someone to do with the quoit once lived there, so now when i go back i'll visit the fallen standing stone knowing what it is, you know what it's like!!!!
Didn't know about that either and yes, I know exactly what it's like! What do you make of the funny square "chamber" down the hill from the quoit? It's definitely man-made but I couldn't work out what it was at all.
Definitely man made, and has big stones in walling, but different to other neolithic/ bronze age or iron age homes/ or parts of homes around, it looks old but i wouldn't like to guess it's age, all in all a bit of a mystery, it does look like it may have been some sort of shelter [if it had a roof].
