Killin Stone Circle
Killin Stone Circle in 2008
The stone circle consists of six upright slabs, ranging in height from around 1.4 metres to 1.9 metres. The stones form a flattened circle with a diameter of around 10 metres. The stones are of dark grey schist. The two tallest stones lie next to each other on the southwest quadrant. On the top of the northernmost stone there are three cupmarks.
The stone circle is one of the more westerly examples of a large number of stone circles to be found in central Scotland, many of which consist of six stones. The good condition of this particular stone circle may be due to its position in the grounds of Kinnell House, and it may have been 'restored' in the 18th or 19th century.
