Cairn N and Standing Stone, Loughcrew, Co. Meath.

Location – On a small knoll between Carnbane East and Carraig Breac.
OS: N 582 771 (map 42)
GPS: N 58234 77198 (Accuracy – 2m)
Longitude: 7° 7' 2.38" W
Latitude: 53° 44' 28.11" N

See map at the bottom of the page.

Description and History – There is nothing really to see here apart from a few kerb stones that are still in place. All cairn material and the inner chamber are completely missing. It was probably around 20m in diameter when complete. A standing stone sits near to the site with some decoration which is now too faded to see. 

Difficulty – It’s fairly easy to spot and is a short distance away from the main complex on Carnbane East.
