Beaghmore Stone Circles : Michelin's recommendations
The seven cromlechs (stone circles) are formed of quite small stones set on, rather than in, the ground. Six of the circles are arranged in pairs, with a cairn and a row of stones near the point of intersection. The area enclosed in the seventh unattached circle is studded with close-set stones, known as the "Dragon's Teeth". The circles may date from the Bronze Age (1500-800 BC).
