The remains of the Pitchroy circle are to be found right next to the B9102, about a mile south from it's junction with the B9138. Only two stones are left, one up and one down. There are some carvings on the bottom of the standing stone but what they are letters or a picture...I don't know. A third stone has gone. Once again the views are great as the circle looks down into the Spey valley.

For "Biggles" fans Captain A. Jones wrote some of stories whilst staying at Pitchroy House only a short distance down the road.

Two stones remain of this circle. One a full 7 feet high, the other now fallen. Visible from the road.
