The Mound Stone Circle
Dornoch, Highland OS Map
Stone Circle Canmore
Also known as Aberscross; Golspie-Lairg Road; Mound Junction

When I visited this little stone circle it was almost lost in the bracken. It stands on a naturally flat area a little way up the slope of The Mound Rock. There are six stones - three still standing and three fallen. The largest standing is a slab about two metres square made from a red lumpy conglomerate.

There are great views across the River Fleet and towards the standing stone in the valley of Abhainn an t-Sratha Charnaig.
