Archaeological Site in North East Scotland


North-East is the Private House Stays name given to the Area of Aberdeenshire that runs from Angus, up the East coast to the Moray Firth and bordered by the Cairngorms to the West. It is an area steeped in history seemingly with every village containing an ancient castle and grand estates everywhere. The area includes Royal Deeside, the Queen's summer palace at Balmoral, Speyside and a concentration of much of Scotland's whisky industry.

  • Aberdeenshire is full of all sorts of ancient Pictish and Neolithic archeological sites. Many of these sites are not fully understood or there is very limited information about them but they are great fun to visit because they are nearly always located in places with a a wonderful presence and one can wonder at the civilisation that brought them about. Private House Stays recommends the following for your consideration: Brandsbutt Stone, Dyce Symbol Stone, East Aquhorthies Stone Circles, Maiden Stone, Picardy Stone, Cullerlie Stone Circle, Culsh Earth House, Loanhead Stone Circle, Loudon Wood Stone Circle, Memsie Burial Cairn, Peel Ring, Strichen Stone Circle, Tap o' Noth Hill Fort and Tomnaverie Stone Circle.
