Introduction

Dumfries and Galloway region lies in the south west corner of Scotland and is by far the largest, and from the point of view of ancient stones, the richest area in the south of Scotland.  Covering almost 6500 square km, the region has a wide variety of stone circles, standing stones, named stones, cairns and chambered cairns, the latter not found elsewhere in southern Scotland. To date around 20 sites have been visited, photographed and recorded by the author leaving more than 60 known sites listed for future trips and an unknown number of sites such as cairns and prehistoric rock art, still to be looked at for possible inclusion. This region offer arguably some of the most interesting and spectacular ancient stones in Scotland and there are plenty of opportunities for the stone hunter to find lost sites.
