Colen Wood
Perth, Perthshire OS Map
Stone Circle Canmore
Also known as Colen

A mile to the west of Druids' Seat Wood and two miles west of Blackfaulds Stone Circle is this fallen circle at Colen Wood.

There are nine stones in a circle about twenty-five feet in diameter, but only one of the stones - a little over three feet high - still stands.

On the standing stone and the fallen stone to its immediate south are a couple of cup marks. The fallen stone immendiately to the north has over thirty cup marks on its upper face.

In the centre of the circle is the remains of a cist.
