Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Toggle location map

Its almost perfectly circular plan places Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle early in the series of Recumbent Stone Circles.

It is 19.5 m in diameter and consists of 9 erect stones, the red granite recumbent, 2 grey granite flankers plus 2 massive blocks which form a reserved area in front of the recumbent. The West flanker has 4 cup marks on it.

The differences between this recumbent with its flankers and the other circle stones can be seen clearly in terms of their geological origin.
