Sunday, 1st February 2004

Half hidden in gorse, mud and sheep droppings these two stones look fairly unspectacular. They are two slab like stones set into a loose cairn type thing. The tallest is 1.5m tall and the other just 1m. The stones are .8m wide and 1.2m wide respectively. The cairn is 3m long and 2m wide.

Looking SW along the line of the row points straight at Glenlieve and Glenclaw Hill.

About Coordinates Displayed

This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.

Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.

Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.

The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.

UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.

ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
