Long Meg & Her Daughters

Stone Circle


The stone circle is said to be a witches coven turned to stone by the wizard Michael Scot when he found them holding a sabbat.
Meg may have been Meg of Meldon a local 17th cntury witch.
The stones are said to be uncountable and if anyone arrives at the same figure twice the spell is said to be broken and if a piece is broke off Long Meg herself she is said to bleed.
The 2 largest stones in the circle east and west are said to point to the spring and summer equinoxes.
