The Fowlis Wester Circles

Ordnance Survey Map Reference NN923249

The eastern circle and outlier

The western circle


Half a mile above the village of Fowlis Wester is an area where parking is possible. From there it is around 400m walk up a rough track to the outlier, which is clearly visible. Both circles are in a fairly ruinous condition. The 6ft outlier is around 40 feet to the NE of the eastern circle. The eastern circle comprises 9 remaining stones, graded to the SW (pointing to the 2-stone row at Crofthead), with a kerb cairn enclosed within, also graded in the same direction. There are 3 cupmarks on the SSW kerb. The western circle is very tumbled. A large slab lies just east of it. The views are pretty good if you get a nice day, unfortunately it was pretty misty the day we visited.
