This beautifully-situated four-poster circle sits on a small mound, which itself sits on a small steep-sided hill, affording spectacular views along Glen Shee.
Although the mound on which the stones sit is was excavated in 1894 and reported to be a natural morain deposit, it does look very suspicious, and there are stones on the east side of it which could be the remnants of a kerb, suggesting that this may in fact be a barrow.
In the past, the Spittal of Glenshee standing stone would have been visible from this site, although it is now hidden behind the church.
