Stone Circle


Shethin Stone Circle can be found to the east of the farm with the same name within the Fountain Hill field. (north east of Tarves) This is a wonderful setting of smallish stones ranging from 2 to 4 feet in height. Some suggest that this might be a version of a Four Poster similar to Riach. The present farmer looks after the circle and leaves it sitting within a patch of grass. A stone at the northern entrance to the farm and a stone a further 1/2 mile east are said to have been moved from their original positions. Some maps have this marked as a cairn.
