|Description ||Backhill of Drachlaw at NJ673463 in Aberdeenshire is rated as an Grade One Circle by Burl but personally on this trip I consider Yonder Bognie as more impressive. The stones are unusual in being basaltic with veins of pebbles in them - see close-up.
The farmer admitted to having dumped a rogue stone in the circle - I'll have to go back for another look!
Just under 300m away to the NNE is the huge Carlin Stone reckoned by Fred Cole to be the recumbent of another circle - personally I think it's too big (tall) to be a recumbent.
