The Twelve Apostles, stone circle, Dumfries

At first glance this looks like a field with cows, but look closer and you'll see 11 standing stones (there were probably 12 at one time). This is the largest stone circle in Scotland with a diameter of 88m, but it isn't very well known probably because it is less spectacular than other smaller circles. It is thought to date from 2000BC. Map location.
