Old Keig Stone Circle
North of Alford
Old Keig Stone Circleis renowned as possessing the most massive recumbent stone of any of the Aberdeenshire stone circles. It's mass is estimated to be in excess of 50 tonnes! The flanking pillars are massive too, at nearly 3 metres in height. Access is straightforward: follow the unclassified road west for about one mile from the village of Keig to Old Keig farm. There is room to park just past the narrow plantation of trees stretching south from the foot of The Barmkyn. Old Keig Stone Circle lies within these trees, and is reached along a path through these trees.
