Cullerlie Stone Circle Scotland TO27127JHP 
 Cullerlie Stone Circle Monolith Central Ring Scottish Historic Site Aberdeenshire lies west of Aberdeen near Garlogie off the Aberdeen Tarland Road and is Historic Scotland signposted. It is situated on the edge of Leuchar Moss. Excavated in 1934, evidence was found of cremation in a series of kerb cairns and from wood charcoal analysis it is suggested this occurred at different times in history. Dated from 2nd Millennium BC, it is argued it was a later development of the more common Recumbent Stone Circles. This site is cared for by Historic Scotland and is open to the public with easy access from the nearby public road.
