The Ring of Brodgar, in Orkney, is comprised of 60 stones, 27 of which are still standing. This henge monument is perfectly circular, is 125 megalithic yards (about 104 meters) in diameter, and is surrounded by a 10 foot deep, rock-cut ditch.

The ring dates from the third millennium BC, and is one of the most spectacular stone circles in Scotland.

There are a number of stone circles and standing stones in and around Stirlingshire. If you have more information about them, please let us know.

If you have information about the standing stones that are located near Sheriffmuir, this of particular interest to us here at Clan Stirling Online!
