Teanagairn Henge 

Location

The henge is located at 595578 and on the Ordnance Survey maps is identified as an Earthwork. However, on the OS 25" 1892 - 1949 1st edition it is identified as a Fort.

The first 5 photographs should help to locate the entrance from the B9169 which we consider to be the easiest point of access. The preferred parking is on the gravel verge in front of the house shown in photograph 4.

Photograph 1 is slightly out of date! The "totally overgrown" path is not as daunting as it seems when first approaching it from the garden ground of the Cottage. It is not suitable for wheelchairs and care should be taken re. tree roots etc. as can be seen in photographs 7 and 8. There is now a new gate (see photos for September 2018) in position located at the "D" of "Double line of fence."
