Stone Circle


On the slope of the Hill of Auchlee (topped with a thing called Boswell's Monument) there's dense, thick, sharp gorse a metre and a half high. If there are any standing stones still upright then they're in the gorse and not tall enough to stick up above it. We found a slab over two metres long, possibly a recumbent (or sizeable fragment of it) judging by its shape, and another two stander-sized stones a few metres to the north, one of which was broken into three bits. The dots on the OS map mark four blobs and call it a 'Stone Circle' (not a 'rems of'), which is no guarantee of anything, but does suggest the possibility of there being things hidden in the gorse bushes. It's certainly possible; if, say, the Craigievar circle were here we'd not see a thing. Posted by Merrick
