Cullerlie Stone Circle

  • Near Garlogie, Aberdeenshire AB32



Discover a 4,000-year-old stone circle and cremation site, surrounded on all sides by rising ground. 

Cullerlie Stone Circle’s eight stones surround an area which was likely used for cremation. Eight small ring cairns within the stone circle were likely built later. Each contains a cremation. 

Cullerlie stands on a low gravel ridge at the bottom of a valley. It is possibly a later development of recumbent stone circle found in Aberdeenshire. These monuments were often designed to have impressive views to and from them.

It is an unusual monument – there are few others like it in the region – but it may be that others were destroyed by agriculture or development in the past.

Opening times

Cullerlie Stone Circle is open year-round.
