Stone Circle


This should be a fantastic RSC set in the wonderful Grassic Gibbon countryside instead it is a miracle. The inner ring of kerbs is there but broken, circle stones have been removed and trashed and the recumbent battered into it's present state by drilling and whatever else. However it isn't defeated and at certain angles, especially looking south east, it remains defiant. The cairn also known as The Camp is almost 18 meters wide and is hollowed out. What a place this must have been. Full of legend and story tellers.

This was the third climb of the day. Easiest directions. Travel east on the B967 at Inverbervie, good chippie, taking the first minor road north (this area is teeming with stuff as you'll soon find out) taking the first tarred road east. Keep going until the tar runs out and head along the track stopping at Montgoldrum farm. The RSC and nearby cairns are on the hill to the north. Head east then north to avoid the jabby stuff. For me this was the start of a very long walk. Cracking weather for it.
