Castlehowe Scar

Stone Circle


Sunday 29 June 2003
On the way to Oddendale, stopped at Castlehowe Scar Stone Circle. Strange (to us) little circle this one.

There are about 9 or 10 fairly large low ‘boulder’ type stones that make up the ‘circle’. It certainly is quite like Iron Hill and Little Meg (though I’ve personally yet to go to L’il M).

Given that, it’s no surprise that it seemed to us more like a ruined cairn ‘kerb’ circle. Nice on a sunny day though! Shame the locked gate suggests people aren’t very welcome. Didn’t notice the alleged row though. Bugger, I’ll have to go back now.
