Stone Circle


Important in all the sites in this web site is the landscape that these monuments are set in. The particular points in the land where these sites are, were chosen, I'm sure, and not by chance. The whole monument was dismantled, moved, and reconstructed at the present site in 1970, (stones, burial cists and all), to fit in with the neat planning of the new-town road network. As if out of conscience for what happened to this site (and Balfarg), the planners have built a standing stone theme roundabout nearby.
I find this all a bit strange, and I didn't have a good feeling after visiting this place.
