Strichen Stone Circle
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The stone circle is signposted with a brown sign from the south side of the bridge at the southern edge of Strichen. Follow the minor road for several hundred yards, until you see a second brown sign. There is just room for a couple of cars to park on the verge without obstructing a driveway.
You need to pass under the old railroad arch, over a stone footbridge, and follow the path uphill 700 metres. You'll climb over 2 stiles, then turn left up to the crest of the hill, where you'll find the circle within a fenced area. Rather incongruously there is a picnic table within the fenced enclosure, beside the circle, but there is no information panel to explain about the site.
