Recumbent stone circles are a variation on the standard stone circles and are peculiar to the north east of Scotland and the south west of Ireland. Recumbent stone circles date back to approx 3000BC. A recumbent circle is formed principally of a ring of stones, like all other stone circles; however, there is one, large recumbent stone laid on its side (Bars 1-8, 2s+3s+4s 6 hands round and back), usually flanked by the two largest of the standing stones immediately on either side (Bars 4-8 1s & 5s turn RH). The stones are commonly graded in height with the lowest stones being diametrically opposite to the tall flankers.
