Nine Stanes of Mulloch Stone Circle

Toggle location map

Nine Stanes of Mulloch Recumbent Stone Circle stands in a clearing in an area of woodland.

The stone circle surrounds a ring cairn, and comprise 6 erect stones, the recumbent and 2 flankers (hence the name "Nine Stanes" or "stones").

This stone circle differs from classic examples in having the recumbent and flankers set on the edge of the inner cairn, while the remaining standing stones sit in an oval outer arc, c.18 by 14.6m. It is thought that this circle was built late in the sequence of Recumbent Stone Circles.
