This is not a book about the prehistoric peoples who built the stone circles. Rather it is light-hearted look at the weird and wonderful uses that these circles have been put to through the ages. This strange and fascinating list of uses ranges from murder to the site of a rock concert . Discover how some circles were used for sex and promoting fertility, another for preventing pregnancy, and how these sites have been associated with fairies, witches, the Devil, UFOs, space aliens and visionary experiences amongst other things.
In this unique guide by Geoff Holder, major sites such as Stonehenge and Avebury rub shoulders with comparatively little-known circles. As well as stone circles the book includes single standing stones, burial cairns, prehistoric rock art, and carved Pictish stones.
Geoff Holder is a writer and producer, most notably producing the series Scotland - The Mysterious Country, and lives in Perthshire. He is also the author of Guide to Mysterious Perthshire and Guide to Mysterious Loch Ness.
