South Ythsie

South Ythsie image

An interesting small (8.2m in diameter) circle of six boulders on a man-made levelled mound. The stones include two porphyritic veined with quartz, three whinstone (gneiss) and one of grey granite.
The stones are graded in height towards the south-west. There are records of an outlier some 200m north-east.
In 1994 the stone circle was restored by the members of Tarves Heritage Project.
