Opening times

Cullerlie Stone Circle is open year-round.

 

Overview

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 is remarkable for its setting at the bottom of a valley. Most prehistoric stone monuments were built on higher ground, and the reason for Cullerlie’s unusual location is a mystery.
