Although the location of this litrle ceremonial enclosure may seem remote to modern eyes, the gravel soils of the Rhynie area clearly attracted settlement from early times. The henge consists of a low circular bank, 16.5m in diameter, with one entrance in the south-east which gives access across the shallow ditch to the level central area, a mere 6m in diameter. The low-lying position of the henge, close ro water, is typical, although few are so enclosed by the sides of a glen.
