Fortingall Stone Circles
Fortingall Stone Circles
To the E of Fortingall stand three groups of standing stones. Closest to the road are a group of four stones and a group of three stones , while further into the field, closer to the river, is another group of three. Originally they had been four-poster variants, each comprising of four large stones at the corners of a rectangle, with four smaller stones mid-way between the larger ones. In both cases, the missing five stones had been pushed over and buried deeply in prepared pits at some point in the nineteenth century. The date is known as one of the stones was found to have a Victorian beer bottle under it.
