Machrie Moor XI is a low stone circle with a diameter of around 13m, consisting of ten upright stones. The tallest of the stones is about 1.2m high.

This is a recently discoverer stone circle, excavated from the peat by Aubrey Burl in 1978. One of the less impressive monuments of the Machrie Moor cluster, but the setting is everything, and this small circle is still wonderful when considered as part of the wider landscape. It's hard not to be impressed when spectacular views greet the eye in every direction.
