The Goatstones (Wark)
These are the remains of a stone circle with four large central stones. It stands on a small knoll at the south-west end of Ravensheugh Crags. One of the four stones is decorated with cup marks. Within the circle are traces of a low mound. This may be the remains of a stone cairn, which predates the construction of the stone circle. This monument was probably built in the Bronze Age and had some kind of religious purpose. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
