This recumbent stone circle lies on the shoulder of a hill north-west of Aberdeen, with beautiful views of the lowlands and the coast. The surrounding trees, visible in the photo, have been cut.
The ten uprights are of red granite, while the massive 24-ton recumbent is of dark grey granite. The circle stones' heights vary from the 1m of the one opposite the recumbent to 2.9m and 3.3m of the flankers.
The recumbent, leaning towards the centre, is a gigantic square slab 3m long and 3.2m high.
