Saints and Stones: Fortingall Stones

In a field just to the East of the village of Fortingall stand three groups of stones, formerly part of stone circles in the past. Closest to the road are a group of four stones (NE: see first additional photo below) and a group of three stones (SW: second addional photo below). Later excavations have revealed that both of these circles were made up of eight stones. There is also a third set of stones near the river (not shown below).

Lastly, another set of stones are located as you enter the village near a stone wall (see third additional photo below), which may also have been a stone circle.
