Cullerlie Stone Circle

Despite a little bit of snow I managed out to Cullerlie stone circle today.
Unlike the three I featured last week, this circle does not include a recumbent and it is around 500 years later than those last week, dating from around 3,500 years ago, and the stones are much smaller.


Also different is that bone fragments and evidence of fires show that Cullerlie was a cremation site.


The circle of 8 granite standing stones is around 10 m diameter and the small stones you see within the larger circle form 8 cairns or cremation rings.

  1. Thanks for the link. I enjoyed reading your chopper experiences at Cullerlie. You’re the second person to mention the wee dug. He didn’t come over when we were there but we could hear a dog at the farm next door.

  2. Looks lovely in the snow. Check out our field report from a visit this summertime: http://otheraberdeen.blogspot.com/2011/08/stone-circle.html
