[Loanhead of Daviot Stone Circles]

Loanhead Stone Circle is one of the better of the large bunch of 4,000 year old stone circles found all over the north east. Or rather, one of them is - there are actually a pair of circles on this hilltop site, but little of remains of the second. The main circle consists of nearly a dozen boulders including a hefty recumbent stone flanked by two upright ones; this is common amongst the region's stone circles and their alignment probably relates to the lunar calendar.
