Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Kincardinshire & Moray - four
counties in Northeast Scotland with boundaries created in Norman times based on earlier
Pictish land divisions - have the world's greatest configuration of prehistoric and
early-historic stones, carved art and clusters of ancient settlements, in an area roughly
half the size of Switzerland, within walking distance for most people. We list sites with
disabled access with a *star. Please bear in mind, when visiting the stones, firstly that
they originally had sacred meaning to the culture which erected them; secondly that most
still stand on private ground and are protected not only by the Scottish Executive, but
also personally by the landowner over whose field you walk.
