Berrybrae Stone Circle
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Sometime around 1700 BCE the cairn was destroyed, and the standing stones - with the exception of the recumbent stone and one flanking stone - were chopped down to create a level site.
A stone wall was then erected over the remainder of the standing stones and the bank to create a cremation cemetery. Within the circle was a ring cairn containing 3 burials.
About 7 miles away is Memsie Cairn burial site.
