Castlehowe Stone Circle

Castlehowe Stone Circle is very small but worth it if you’re monument bagging or passing by on a walk. The circle itself is by the side of a dry stone wall at the edge of a rather lumpy sheep field and doesn’t seem to attract much attention.

The small stone circles such as this one at Castlehowe are usually said to be from the later period of circle building.
