Ninestanes Recumbent Stone Circle

Banchory, Aberdeenshire
Stone Circle (Recumbent)
Also known as Garrol Wood; Garrol Hill; The Nine Stanes; Nine Stones

Whilst looking somewhat rough and ragged, this is an impressive circle set in a clearing in the woods with a long view along a forest firebreak over the recumbent stones.

The ring is a little over sixty feet in diameter, but the recumbent and flankers are set some distance inside the circumference of this ring. The recumbent is about eight feet long and the flankers, if they still stood straight, would be five and seven feet tall.
