The Twelve Apostles (Stone Circle)


The twelve apostles, although the largest stone circle in Scotland and the fifth in Britain, tends to be overlooked because it is not visually that impressive. The circle consists of eleven squat boulders of a probable twelve, constructed in a flattened circle, some 88M in diameter at its widest.

There is also a cursus close to the circle that is now only visable as a crop mark, but denotes a place of some importance, although the purpose of these strange earthworks is unknown.

The site is thought to date from around 2000BC at the end of the Neolithic Age.

Directions: On a minor road off the A76.
