Moss Farm Road Stone Circle (or Machrie Moor 10) is the remains of a Bronze Age burial cairn, surrounded by a circle of stones. It is located near Machrie on the Isle of Arran in Scotland .

Description

The cairn and stone circle is situated 3 miles north of Blackwaterfoot on the west side of the Isle of Arran. Around 1 kilometre to the east are the Machrie Moor Stone Circles, and this circle is sometimes known as Machrie Moor Circle 10.

The cairn has been robbed for stone, and a modern fence and a farm track have cut through the north side of the site. It was once surrounded by a complete circle of stones with a diameter of 23 metres, but many have been removed. The kerb now consists of seven upright stones, around 1 metre high with at least five more large stones now on edge.
