Looking west across the henge

From the A92 at the north end of Glenrothes turn onto the B969, and proceed to the first roundabout (marked with a modern stone circle!) Turn left here, and then about 100 metres in turn right into Henge Crescent. You'll see it straight away. A large board gives some information about the site. There are only two stones remaining, one at the entrance and one which had been part of the circle, but the massive ditch is very obvious. It was excavated in 1977 prior to the construction of the housing estate which surrounds it. The central area of the great circle is some 65m across. Timber posts mark the position of an original timber ring. Well worth a look!
