East Aquhorthies Recumbent Stone Circle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

The stones that make up this well preserved recumbent stone circle are made from varied geological types, including rough pinkish porphyry, red jasper, grey granite and red granite (the recumbent) from near Bennachie. The site has been much restored and is one of the more famous of the Inverurie circles. It dates to ca. 3000 b.c.e.
