Twelve Apostles Stone Circle

This stone circle can be found two miles along the Dumfries by-pass and at first glance could be overlooked as it looks like you are just passing a field of sheep. Look a little closer and you will see 11 large stones some standing about two metres high and others having fallen over. The circle that they make is the largest stone circle on the Scottish mainland with a diameter of just under 90 metres. This means of course that there is quite a bit of space between each stone making it more difficult to see it as a circle to begin with. To really embrace the history of these stones you need to get up close and look at the markings. Look out for an arrow shape and some cup markings.
