Hill o' Many Stanes has around 200 small stones arranged in 22 rows set out in rows running approximately north and south with the incline. The rows are not parallel, however, and they create a fan-shaped pattern. Most of the stones are quite small, none more than a little more than three feet tall.
This site is believed to be from the Bronze Age and that originally there were over 600 stones here. In the UK, stone rows of this kind are unknown outside Caithness and Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland.
