Bocan Stone Circle
It is thought that the Bocan Stone Circle was probably built as a sun temple some 4000 – 5000 years ago. It has a diameter of approximately 20 metres and seems to form two arcs, with seven of the stones still standing out of the original 30 or so, some of which would have been up to 2 metres tall.
The stone circle may be aligned on an east-west axis between Slieve Snaght, the highest mountain in Inishowen and Jura an Island in Scotland, which is visible on very clear day’s.
The best way to get to Bocan Stone Circle is by parking next to St. Mary’s Church just outside Culdaff on the road to Gleneely.
From the car park walk along the road past Inishowen Bogwood Sculptures about 100m to a plot of land for sale, you can see a path through that site, take that path and at the top of the site, there is the field at the back of it where you will see the stone circle.
Alternatively, walk a little further up the road to a turn off to the left, take it and walk 100m to a gate to the field past some trees from there you can see the stone circle in the field.
The stone circle is on private farmland and if you see farm animals in the field please do not go in.
