This is a Bronze age sepulchral stone circle of unknown date, made up of eight boulders. Inside are eight smaller cairns dating from 1800-1200BC which were used for cremation burials. The central cairn is slightly larger than the rest. Each of the cairns is ringed by smaller upright stones, although several of these are now missing. When excavated, two contained pits and two others cists. Only a few burnt bones, charcoal and part of a flint knife were found.

The stone circle is set in flat open farmland, at a road junction next to a farm. It is marked on Ordnance Survey maps and is signed off the B9119. There is a small lay by with a Historic Scotland Information Board. The stone circle is set off the road in a grassed area beyond a double line of fir trees.

As soon as we parked up, the farm collie came to welcome us and show us the way to the stones. He lay on the grass until we had finished and then accompanied us back to the car, His job done, he disappeared back to the farm.

This is in a lovely setting just a few miles south west of Westhill. Although there isn’t a lot to see, it is worth a quick stop if in the area as it is accessible during daylight hours.
