Binghill Recumbent Stone Circle
Binghill is my 'local' stone circle: just a few miles along North Deeside Road. From Aberdeen, head west to the far end of Bieldside and turn right into Contlaw Road. The entrance to Binghill Estate lies just before the road bends, after passing the final houses on the right-hand side.
Walk east for about 300 metres until you are past the wooden trackside fence on your left, then head left, uphill through the beechwood. The stone circle lies just inside the drystane dyke where the northern boundary of the trees meets the field beyond.
