Visited late in the morning of the vernal equinox 06,do not under any circumstances park where i did ,well park wasn't exactly what I did more exactly I got stuck in the mud and couldn't extract it on my own,so I went to find the circle first then worry about the car.
Amongst a Conifer plantation the stone circle is next to a rough road where the trees have been cleared ,it would have been a good ring once the stones are quite large but all prostrate,from the circle I could see forestry workers across the shallow valley so I rode my bike a mile or two around the road and asked if they could pull my car out ,they elected the youngest member of their group to help me, I threw my bike in the back of his pick-up and retuned to the earth fast car he pulled me out then got stuck himself then I pulled him out and we said goodbye, Thank's friend from Dumfries
