Stone Circle


This is a crackin' site. We approached from Wigton seeing the stone row first.
The setting of the circle is beautiful, we'd been looking at circles in the hills and this made a lovely constrast with it's setting on it's own platform in the fertile fields of the Machars.
The circle is in excellent nick and draws you into itself and the landscape.
As we travelled through the landscape we began to realise that a lot of these monuments are orientated NE-SW, this goes for the nearby row and the possible row in the cowfield.
Burl draws comparisons between the centre stone and it's flankers with the Recumbant circles of NE Scotland.
