Cronk Karran "Druids Circle" at The Chasms
Cronk Karran "Druids Circle" at The Chasms
This stone circle is balancing on the edge of the cliff almost ready to be swept away in the next rock fall. It is situated next to the Chasms, a popular walk to a high cliffs where there are cracks which go down into the rock, interesting visit.

Also known as Cronk Karran or Cronk Carran, apparently Bronze Age - Iron Age Roundhouse. (from imuseum.im) This neatly formed stone building, constructed using several large stones, is about 6m in diameter and by size would appear to be a small Bronze or Iron Age hutcircle. Its coastal location and isolation are unusual.

This area was a popular Victorian tourist attraction & a cafe building was constructed overlooking the cliffs. The cafe has been closed for over 50 years - but makes a good bad weather refuge.
