Glassel Dam Wood Stone Circle
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A large boulder, which may be associated with the circle, lies about three metres away. The circle at Glassel Dam marks the transition period between older recumbent stone circles and later 'four-poster' circles.
The site is best accessed off a minor road running north from the A93 at Bridge of Canny. Stop at a private entrance and follow a track west through the trees.
The historic house of Craigievar Castle is just six miles away.
