Stone Circle


Just down the road from Aubrey Burl's Berrybrae - needless to say combine a visit - this fine RSC stands neglected in a circular-walled copse of trees behind the farm buildings of Netherton of Logie.

An elderly woman readily gave permission to visit, the farmer, clad in ubiquitous overalls directing me through a gate to the right with nae bother.

Sure the circle is uncared for, with sundry bits of bottle, wire etc scattered around. Yet the myriad bird boxes attached to the trees reassure you these are decent people.....

The recumbent and flankers are intact, together with a good many circle stones [sorry, I gave up counting years ago - we used a calculator at school, fat lot of good that was]. This RSC has a 'rough and ready' feel light years away from Cullerlie, but arguably is all the better for that.

Well worth the visit. Incidentally the farm has a shop so you may stock up on milk etc before you go. Probably straight from the cow!
