River Almond

Crieff, Perthshire
Stone Circle; Cairn
Also known as Clach na Tiompan; Clach na Trom Pan

This ruined stone circle, thought to be the remains of a four-poster, consists of a pair of stones in a mound of rubble; one of the stones is about four feet high, the other is a stump about three feet high. Holes for two other stones were found.

It has been suggested both that the mound is the remains of a cairn or simply field clearance.

It's not really a site that is worth going out of your way to get to for the sake of seeing the stones...but it is in the beautiful River Almond valley some four miles easy walking from the road on the footpath to Loch Tay - it's worth visiting for the walk.

Just across the track from here is the chambered cairn of Clach na Tiompan - ruinous, but 190 feet long by 40 feet wide and with three visible cists.
