Billown Standing Stone

Period: Unclassified

NGR Easting: 227137

Description: Undated standing stones.

One of three standing stones located at Ballahott, east of the burial cairn at Billown.

The stones are shown on a plan prepared by WC Cubbon published in 1945.

There is a definitely established local tradition in the neighbourhood that the Billown 'Circle' (the cairn mentioned above) and the standing stones surrounding it are closely associated.

These three stones are located in the large 37-acre field immediately to the SW of, and overlooked by Ballahott farm.
