Aikey Brae stone circle overlooks the village of Old Deer in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The circle is composed of 9 stones and one recumbent stone, making a circle of just over 14 metres in diameter. There was apparently one more upright stone but this has disappeared. It is believed that Aikey Brae was built by a farming community some time around 4,000 years ago. It was probably built as a means of charting the passing of the seasons by plotting the lunar cycle.
Aikey Brae is worth the day’s hike.
