Balgorkar

 

BalgorkarHow to get there: The circle sits in a field opposite Castle Fraser, from the Kemnay to Dunecht road (unclassified) that connects up the B977 and the B993.  For access to the circle, I suggest driving past that road to the opposite end of the field, where there is a footpath that leads parallel to the unclassified road.  The stone circle is within easy access through a gate.   Sturdy boots or wellingtons are sensible.

 

Description: Of the 10 stones, only 6 remain standing, the rest being either fallen or missing.  It is approximately 20 metres in diameter.  The circle is typical of most of it's type in the gradation of the stone height towards the recumbent.
