Notes: Butler Cairn 5. Tuner lists this as G24 Stone Circle. However, it is clear from its size and location near other Ring Settings that it is in fact better described as a Ring Setting despite having no visible internal structure. In these listings we will leave it as a cairn circle. "The cairn is defined by a circle of edge set stones which measure 7.8 metres in diameter and stand up to 0.9 metres high." Lethbridge diagram p.114 and photo top p.117.
