Archaeological Notes

NY29NE 24 254 962 to 257 966.

Appearances suggest that an 'avenue' of stones once existed between the Loupin' Stanes (NY29NE 11) and the Girdle Stanes (NY29NE13).
J and R Hyslop 1912

There are several erratic boulders between NY29NE 11 and NY29NE 13 but there is insufficient evidence to suggest that these formed an avenue of stones.
Visited by OS (IA) 16 October 1973

No change to previous field report.
