Tomnaverie, 4000year old stone circle...

Tomnaverie is a `recumbent' stone circle of a type common in northeast Scotland. Such sites include a ring of standing stones which can rise in height towards the southwest, where a horizontal block is flanked by the tallest monoliths. This part of the monument may have been directed towards the moon. Like other examples, Tomnaverie contains a cairn. The Circle is dated at about 4000years old...
