Map Confusion All Around

The first site I went to today appears on the OS map as 'Standing Stones', but is in fact a passage tomb and a standing stone (of sorts). Later I went to a site labelled 'Stone Circle' & 'Chambered Grave' - the map should say 'Stone Circles & Alignments', 'Standing Stone' where it says Chambered Grave and should have Chambered Grave elsewhere on the hillside. This site seems to be a very important place in terms of being chock-full of monuments, with a Beaghmore-like complex poking out of the peat at its heart.

After that I decided to head for home as it started to rain and, already having a cold, I didn't want to make that worse before starting my new job tomorrow. However, I decided to head for one last monument before heading south again and I am so glad I did. I found one of the most incredible court tombs I've ever been to, but more on this later.

Much closer to home I made a quick detour when I saw a sign to a place I'd read about quite a while ago, but never really knew where it was.
