Auchlee Stone Circles

Near Portlethen, Aberdeenshire

Although listed as Scheduled Monuments by Historic Scotland, don't expect too much from these two stone circles, both of which are in a serious state of disrepair. The Auchlee Farm monument, though surrounded by gorse, is currently (June 2010) clear and features the remains of both a cairn circle and a stone circle. The Auchlee Cottage monument is deeply embedded in gorse bushes, though some recent clearing has taken place and a path leads in to the stones from the south. There are four obvious large stones.
