Stone Circle


The semi-surrounding of trees gives this place a Rollrights feel, but the stones are entirely Grampian. And the cairn stones in the middle - especially with the empty, cleared centre - give the site a kind of mandalic focus. I was perplexed by descriptions of "twelve cup-marks" on one of the flankers - I could only find two un-cup-like horizontal grooves. The woods here look so perfect for camping, but very little chance of getting away with it I suppose, unless you're a local scout or guide... Posted by gyrus
