Patrick Will, of the Mill of Kelly, told me about this place. There is a fallen slab which could be the recumbent and a possible flanker lying not far away. In a field behind the farm a massive pile of boulders sits, field clearance, former dykes or the remains of circle stones.

Leave Auchnagatt and travel north towards Stuartfield on the B9030 taking the third right (east). At West Crichie Farm turn north thru the farm and stop before the bungalow. Recumbent to the left, flanker/boulders to the right.

Visted September 08.

(I know about Upper Crichie and it is in the Skelmuir area so anything might of happened!)
