There's quite a scattering of Southern Brochs across Scotland some of them well South of the Forth-Clyde ithsmus. Torwoodlee, Edin's Hall, Calla, Stairhaven, Doon etc. A few mighty examples across Stirlingshire and the area around Strathearn. There is a kinda recent view that all of Scotlands range of brochs from the far Northern Isles and Sutherland right down to the Central Belters and Solway outliers should be grouped together into an "Atlantic Roundhouse Tradition" and alongside Duns and Wheelhouses.

I liked all these ones. Litter-free and obviously cared for, similar to many urban Scottish sites in that respect (Aviemore, Stonyfield come to mind). thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Certainly a bit different to a bloody 'walkers' shelter'. Windmills of the mind. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Really was, the individual stones were very interesting in that you could easily persuade yourself that they had carvings in them and not just natural weathering. Posted by costaexpress

Exactly! Wish I had spent more time there now getting into the undergrowth and trying to trace any remnants. Posted by costaexpress

Mysterious innit.
Reminds me of Cist Cerrig in North Wales.

The stone circle is good, but it's not in it's original position, though the new one isn't bad. Two henges and a stone circle in, what? 400yds of each other postman Posted by postman

This is one of my favourite places that you post photos from that I've never been to (if that makes sense). thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Nope or maybe I'd just forgotten. My memory is truly terrible. The stone circle you visited looks good to. I think I need a trip to Fife. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Just a magic point of view. The two mushrooms look like visitors having a good chat about the stones. thelonious Posted by thelonious

No I didn't.

Oh no, not good. I hope the leg's feeling a bit better?

Guessing you didn't have a go on the Elie chain walk after that.

Lovely light on this one. I'll be honest, I didn't know you got brochs this far south! Is this the most southern one do you know that has any broch-like features? thelonious Posted by thelonious
