Recumbent stone circle discovered at north-east farm

A stone circle has been discovered on a farm in the north-east.

The stone circle was found near Leochel-Cushnie and had been unknown to archaeologists until now.

Read the Evening Express report.

Adam Welfare from Historic Environment Scotland said: “In numbering 10 stones it fits the average, but its diameter is about three metres smaller than any known hitherto and it is unusual in that all the stones are proportionately small.”
