Visit Notes

This site looks like a superb example of its type. I didn't get very close to it, but I was able to see it from the hills to the south on the way to Cloghafadd (County Antrim). It looks in very good condition with very well defined stone edges. I will take a closer look the next time I am in the area.

One of the best places to see this excellent example of a crannog is from the road to the south near to Tervillin (County Antrim). From here you can clearly see the wonderful stone work that forms the crannogs edges and that has kept it in such good shape. I'm quite taken with this site - I'd love to be able to actually go out to it one day.

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.
