Hidden in the heart of Ulster lies the Glenelly Valley and the Sperrins; a dramatic environment millions of years in the making with a thousand and one secrets waiting to be discovered. Mysterious sentinels such as Goles Stone Row (also called the Goles Alignment)  add to the Sperrins’ enchantment and are an integral part of the region’s Journey In time tour of archaeological and historic sites.

Situated on the lower southern slopes of Oughtvabeg mountain on the north side of Glenelly Valley, this site lies at an altitude of about 230 metres (700 feet).

The stone row is 16 metres long, orientated north-south and could be focused on a small hollow on the summit of Carnanelly Mountain to the south. It may be associated with with rituals to observe the rising moon.

This monument has similarities with the small stone circles and associated alignments which exist in other parts of central Ulster and is probably between 4,500 and 3,500 years old, or early Bronze Age in date.

Interpretation available on site.

This site is scheduled under Article 3 of the Historic Monuments and Archaeological Objects (Northern Ireland) Order 1995.
