STONE CIRCLE (Site of) [East Pitforthie] Druids Circle Blacks History of Brechin
Alexander Crabb East Pitforthie
Mr. Mustard Leuchland
027 This place is now ploughed and all the stones removed, which composed the Circle or ring, but the place is still easily discerned, and is known in the neighbourhood as the Druids Chapel.
Black's History of Brechin alludes to it thus,
"The numerous Druidical remains still to be found in the vicinity of Brechin, The Circle at Easter Pitforthie, The temple at Barrelwell or Pitpullox, of which only one stone (Killievair Stone) now stands, the erection at Vane of Fearn, The "Law" on the farm of Hilton of Fearn, and several other similar structures go to prove that the Druids were a powerful body in this quarter."
