Clune Hill

Stone Circle


Interesting one this. I was just back up to Aberdeen for the weekend and got my OS maps out to check which one it was. Turns out it's also known as Clune Hill as well. In fact there is ( or was ) even a local council leaflet on the place - got a copy of it sitting back at my folks house in Aberdeen. ( There's a whole range of info. leaflets produced by the local councils on some of the stone circles, pictish things and the like which quite surprised me ).

Anyway, more to the point... Recently there has supposed to have been a "Deeside Offroad Centre" opened up which was going to be going through the woods round about that circle. In fact rumour had it that they may have destroyed the circle in the process. I wanted to get up there at the weekend to check it out but family issues meant I didn't get the time - might try to go when I'm there at christmas though and will post something again if I do. Meanwhile, if anyone can shed more light on the matter then give me a shout because I'd be very interested.

As for the circle itself... was quite a good one, on top of the hill, great view... and good vibes!
