Lang Stane o'Craigearn
Lang Stane o'Craigearn
A solitary standing stone of grey granite atop a small hill, the Lang Stane O'Craigearn may be the last surviving stone from a stone circle. The Lang Stane stands over 3.5 metres high (about 11.5 feet), which makes it one of the tallest standing stones in Grampian. It is quite hefty around the middle, too, at about 2.75 metes around.
Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle is about 3 miles away, and the Kintore Symbol Stone 4 miles distant. Closer to hand - and relatively recent compared to stone circles, is Castle Fraser, only about 1.5 miles from the Lang Stane.
