Ancient Stones brings together hundreds of ancient
stones such as stone circles, standing stones, boundary
stones, named stones, sacred places, natural features and other unusual or
interesting stones and locations found throughout the
South of Scotland. The site mainly covers The Lothian
regions around Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders but is also
now beginning to
document stones in the Kingdom of Fife to the north and Dumfries &
Galloway in the south west.
Each entry contains a detailed description of the
stone or stones found at each location, along with
information on folklore associated with the site and
surrounding area. Fieldnotes are also included and reveal
some of the more unusual activities and reports associated
with these ancient stones. Detailed directions for getting to the
site are given and some notes on parking are also included.
