Situated in next field south and over the shoulder of Dilly Hill. Even better views on Bennachie, with stone seemingly aligned to the Mither Tap. Sadly the other stones in the picture formerly stood their positions being used as rubbing stones again.

However a chance meeting with an elderly gentleman, who had worked at Conglas farm, ended with the information that Dilly Hill had stones circling it. This is even more interesting that considering that a cairn and settlement existed on the hill. Even more interesting is that a henge, settlement and/or enclosure stood at Middleton. Further investigation needed.
