Yahoo Map of Tyrebagger Stone Circle

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


This recumbent stone circle erected in the 3rd-2nd millennium BC, lies on a hill northwest of Aberdeen.
The ten uprights are of red granite, while the massive 24-ton recumbent is of dark grey granite. Once every 18 years a full moon will seem to roll over the top of the stone and southern horizon.
The circle stones' heights vary from the 1m of the one opposite the recumbent to 2.9m and 3.3m of the flankers.
The recumbent today leans towards the centre. It is a gigantic square slab 3m long and 3.2m high.
