The circle I helped build is at Lyne of Skene (hill above BA stores) on the owners land, Allan Brownie. If you look over the recumbent (SW horizon)it is aligned to the Barmekin Hill (Iron Age hill fort on top). However when looking at an OS map afterwards I noticed that it also lines up with the stones at Wester Echt, Midmar Kirk, Sunhoney Stone circle and a ceremonial site, Blackyduds on the Hill of Fare on the far horizon. We felt guided from the beginning of this project which was a loose idea in late 2003 when I started Sacred Way tours and met Allan. We had one day to build it this year and it happened to be on Beltane. The next day was a red moon lunar eclipse which activated the circle and niether of us was aware of this lunar happening until after it had happened. The following weekend Allan held the annual BA Agricultural Vintage fair with all the stall holders around the circle. It was amazing to see that 6000 years later some 7000 people from the surrounding farming communities and Aberdeen would once again meet and be engaged at a stone circle, as I believe would have happened in the original communities. I have been asked to build other circles but feel that if the alignment etc is not correct then I will not be involved in it. These circles serve an 'energy' purpose as much today as they did by the original creators.
