Candle Stane
Candle Stane
This tall standing stone is the only survivor of a recumbent stone circle about 13 metres in diameter, situated beside an old quarry. There were originally 8 stones arranged around a central cairn about 7 metres wide. One stone has disappeared, and the others have fallen, leaving only the Candle Stane upright.
The stone reaches 3.1 metres (just over 10 feet), and stands stone stands on a slope just under the summit of a low hill. Excavations have revealed that there was once an Iron Age timber hut within the stone circle, though nothing now remains of that.

Other attractions in the area include Pitmedden Garden, the Prop of Ythsie monument, and a pair of historic houses, Haddo House and Tolquhon Castle.
