Roam among a rich prehistoric landscape at one of the best-preserved stone circles in Scotland.

Torhouse Stone Circle lies in the Bladnoch Valley. It is the best surviving monument in what was once clearly an important landscape during prehistory.

The stone circle  is in an excellent state of preservation. Its 19 stones are graded in height, with a line of three boulders in the centre. This was recorded in 1684 as ‘King Gauldus’s Tomb’.
