Five Stanes

Stone Circle


Jan2000CE Eastern Scottish Borders

On a day of intermittent Snow, hail and Sun, I decided to head off to find this small site.
Narrow roads lead to where you will have to leave your car.

Bizarrely, you have to follow a rutted track of the old roman road called Dere Street for about a mile and a half to reach it. Being in the Cheviot hills, the roman soldiers didn't have it easy, yeah, the road was straight, but up and down, upand down.

The site is windswept with fantastic views. The air was crisp and I left invigorated, back to the car before early nightfall and heavier snowfall.
