Ruinous but impressive stone circle.

Rothiemay is a recumbent stone circle, about 28 metres in diameter, originally consisting of an estimated 12-14 stones. Of those, four stones and the central recumbent stone survive. The remaining stones from the outer circle are all around 2 metres in height. The central recumbent stone is heavily cup-marked.

Although Rothiemay is an undoubtedly ruinous stone circle, the sheer size of the surviving stones mean that it's still possible to get a good impression of the scale of this monument. I visited with low expectations, and I was quite taken aback at just how impressive the remains of this stone circle are.
