Perth, Perthshire
Stone Circle Canmore
Also known as Black Fauld

There are nine or ten (it is debatable whether one belongs) megaliths in this stone circle in Blackfaulds Wood near Perth. Most of the stones have fallen and one of them has split into at least four pieces.

It has been described as one of a pair circles, but CANMORE state that there is only the one and that this is a mistake that has been carried through from documentation in the early 20th century.

The circle is about 25 feet across and the largest stone would have stood around six feet high. Although overgrown, the circle is still quite easily seen when you are within it.
