|Description ||Small, but perfectly formed, stone circle which encloses 8 small cairns, each ringed by kerbstones. These were used for cremated burials. Sorry about the people in the photo, but at least they demonstrate just how tiny this circle is.
Grid Ref: NJ785043|
|initial investigation shows that the summersolstice and wintersolstices at this latitude in 2004 shows that the angle between the 2 is 45 deg, however in -2004 the angle was slightly less (about 43 degrees re-skymap) i havent had time to check if the horizon will effect this angle, any input about this would be greatly apprieciated. SS this year 2004 is at exactly NE -WS is at SE. this circle may be contain alignments to both these events |
|there is usually a plan at each of the stone circles in aberdeenshire (usually by historic scotland etc) there is one at this site. posting a photo on this site would be helpful. otherwise each post about each circle risks being nothing more than a repetition of what has been posted before. thanks|
