Bocan Stone Circle :: Shared Description

The stone circle is located on Bocan Hill, just outside the village of Culdaff on the Inishowen peninsula. It is situated in a heather-covered field.
The stone circle has a diameter of about 18.3 metres. Only seven of the stones are currently standing, the others are fallen or broken. There were originally around 30 stones, some up to 2 metres tall. Two tall stones seem to mark an entrance. Opposite this entrance are two smaller stones, and it has been suggested that the stone circle is aligned on an east-west axis between Slieve Snaght and Jura, Scotland, which is visible on a clear day. Bronze age.
