14/03/2014 - Hadn't really planned to visit here today but we were close by and the sun was trying to break through the clouds so I thought we would say hello to the stones. Parked opposite the track to Old Wester Echt. We walked north and then down the track to New Wester Echt. The circle is in the field south of the farm. Three stones remain of what was probably an impressive circle when complete. They are all pretty tall and quite different to each other which I liked. Good view north to Bennachie and south over the long gone recumbent. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Three stones remain of this circle, one of which slants precariously. A cross has been chisled into the tallest. All the other stones, out of a possible 9, have gone. However in amongst the trees at New Wester Echt Farm are some interestingly shaped sones. They have obviously been there for some time.
From the village of Dunecht go south on the B977. Take the second road right, west, and stop at the farm. The site can be seen in a field a short distance away. Best to ask permission of the farmer before climbing over the gate.
