Stone Circle


Never having seen an RSC until Midmar Kirk I was really taken with them. East Aquorthies, Loanhead etc, we visted the others and were very impressed. Until this place.


Think of the first time you saw Avebury, the shiver down your spine, the feelings.... This place is just fantastic. The setting is awesome, the modern intrusions terrible, but they don't really matter. This site has a power which is hard to describe, but it's true: the airport, the industrial estate, the mast - they all just fff fade away..

You HAVE to get to this site - you will not be disappointed.

Basic directions: Come off of the A96 at the western side of the airport, and drive through the industrial estate. Keep your eye out for a Shell filling station on your right, as there are 2 standing stones outside it; the larger appears to be pointing at Tyrebagger. As you go through the traffic lights, and enter the national speed limit zone, there is a service road on your left, take it. Immediately in front of you is the farm track - you can either park here or drive up. As you look up the hill, there are two masts, Tyrebagger is next to the left hand, darker mast (This mast has now been removed-only one remains on the hill - 2006). Follow the farm track up, and take the first left around the quarry. As you come to the green, with all the farm cottages, take the only left by the substation - follow your nose, and watch out for Heilan attack coos!!
