01/08/2016 - Not many stones left standing but it doesn't really matter. Broubster stone setting is good. An elongated horse shoe shaped setting of standing stones like the Great U of Stemster (I think these are the only two like this round here? Please correct me if I'm wrong). Like Stemster, the stones are turned to point towards the centre. I had been looking forward to this and I really liked it. Access is a bit of a pain. We came from the SE, through rides from the Tulach Buaile Assery. OKish this way. Access out of the forest is tricky from here though. Heading south down the fence line, we found no gate so a deer fence has to be climbed to head across to Aultan Broubster stone circle. Could be better from the north. thelonious Posted by thelonious
