Holmhead Recumbent Stone Circle

Located on Holmhead Farm, about five and a half kilometres northeast of Tarland (as the crow flies), this recumbent stone circle was only discovered in 2018.


Discovered only in 2018, Holmhead is the smallest of the Aberdeenshire Recumbent Stone Circles, around 8 metres in diameter.
It can be accessed from the road leading to Holmhead Farm.
It seems amazing that this circle escaped detection for so long: all its stones are clear to see on the zoomed Bing map below.
