Loudon Wood

Stone Circle


When I was last here (1987), there was no wood - at least surrounding the circle. So it's the opposite of Aikey Brae. Win some, lose some.

Not a great site - and not helped by the trees. Recumbent, one upright and one fallen flanker and two other upright stones.

See it if you're in the area.

Access. Park at NJ 957 504. Follow the forest tracks, as shown on Landranger, to approach the circle from the S. On the track into the forest to reach the site, watch out for a left turn after about 50m. Easily missed! One gate but rather rough going in the forest.
