Didn't get the chance to explore as the gateway I'd parked in at 8am on a frozen Sunday morning suddenly became popular with van loads of farmworkers. Oh well.

The circle is shattered, but it's an epic location and must have been something to see a few short millenia ago (in the grand scheme of things).

Pay a visit if you have the time.

Just on the right side of the road that connects Insch to Old Leslie, about 1 mile. As Greywether suggests park slightly further up from the site. Two massive stones remain not more than 20 meters from the road. Keep going to Old Leslie, at the end of the road, and Braehead is on top of the hill in front.

Driven past weekly.

Not much of interest to see here but since it's in an area with a large concentration of RSCs you'll probably pass near to it travelling between other sites. It's worth stopping at for a quick look.

Access Easy. Park on the minor road at a point just NE of the site. Enter the open grassy area on the N of the road and head up to the left. No gates or fences.
