Colmeallie stone circle

The Colmeallie stone circle is a recumbent stone circle in Glen Esk, Angus, Scotland.[1] It is located 8 km north of Edzell at Colmeallie Farm, adjacent to the unclassified road leading from the B966 to Tarfside and Loch Lee (grid reference NO565780).[2]

Antiquarian Andrew Jervise recorded in 1853 that elderly locals could remember the circle being more complete, but that it had been recently plundered for building materials.[3]
