Salachary Stone Row
Also known as Bealach Mor; The Great Beeches
Salachary is a few miles north of Kilmartin.
In a glen amongst the hills is a row of three megaliths running north to south. One of the stones is still upright, one leans and is almost prostrate, the third is fallen and bedded into the turf but still visible (when not covered in snow!). The northerly standing stone is nearly three metres tall, the central leaning stone is a little over three metres tall, and the southerly prostrate stone would have stood about three and a half metres tall.
On my second visit to the site (this time during the rain rather than the snow) the turf had been cleared around the fallen stone, showing it's edge.
