My man, you've done it again. Need to speak to you about stone circles at Delgaty (I used to work there aargh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), near Turra. Several people have mentioned them but don't seem to know their location! drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy

Canmore says there is a ring cairn at the Woods Of Delgaty, I have vague recollections of this as a child. My father worked at Delgaty Castle, as I did, as a dry stane dyker. Someone else mentioned that there was a circle with 5/6 stones in it quite near the ring which I couldn't find, but they hadn't been there for thirty years or so. Can't find anything in the OS maps. Considering this must be less than a mile from my house, it's a tad annoying. Maybe Canmore have maps, but they don't mention a second circle. There is a barrow on the other Delgaty road, that might be there, but that will be easily found. Wondered if you knew anything since you stay in these parts. (I assume you do and your right about Tyrebagger, Auch as well) drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
