Scope and Content Stone circle at Croft Moraig, Perthshire and Kinross The stone circle at Croft Moraig lies by the side of the road. Excavations have shown there to be three main phases of construction starting with an arrangement of timber posts. This is a plan of the site showing the three different phases. The earliest was a setting of timber posts, about 2 m high. This may have had a central hearth. The posts were replaced by eight stones, one cup-marked, then by nine stones and two outliers. The site was excavated in 1965. The earlier stones were placed in shallow sockets packed with pebbles. The ground surface contained a large amount of Neolithic pottery sherds. Two burial pits lay just outside the latest circle but remains were left. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
