According to Canmore:
"This stone circle stood on the W side of the village of New Scone until 1961, when it was excavated by Stewart (Stewart 1965) in advance of housing development. No trace of a second, tangential circle identified by Stewart is recorded by either the Ordnance Survey or Coles (Coles 1909), and she may have mistaken the character of some natural boulders. On completion of the excavation, the circle was re-erected and it now forms a landscaped feature within the housing complex"

Not very clear as to whether it is in exactly the same spot, Burl doesn't comment on this either. I take the 'the circle was re-erected) to mean it's in the same place, however, as normally there will be a comment if it has been moved - as with Creich Manse and Balbirnie in Fife.

Burl's quite funny on Sandy Road - "This is the ideal site for the slothful. Except when thick with heather it can be seen from one's car".....
