Saints and Stones: Kintraw

The Kintraw site consists of a 13 foot standing stone located between two cairns and a prehistoric enclosure.

The larger cairn, some 50 feet in diameter, was excavated and a cist was found containing cremated bones, shells, animal teeth, and an assortment of other objects.
