Bronze Age Stone Circle

Following the clearfell of a Scots pine plantation at Waterside in 2008, a standing stone was discovered by Bill Adie, a member of the local community who is an experienced diviner. Further investigation revealed the presence of the Hartmann Grid, these are magnetic ley lines thought to run from north to south across the Earth’s surface.

The site contains several small stone circles, larger circles and some oblong shapes, each with a ley line running through its centre. Excavation work is ongoing, though preliminary studies suggest that it is an ancient Bronze Age settlement. Plans are in place to turn the site into a visitor attraction, with information boards and guided tours available to members of the public.
