These site is a must, if you're in the area. It consists of three wedge tombs surrounded by kerb stones. Some of the kerb stones are erected, others are lying down. If've never seen a comparable site before.
As the site is part of a 'Heritage Trail', there is a parking area from where a path leads to the site. It was a bit boogy, but I guess it could be very muddy after longer periods of rain.
Apart from that, this is really a great site to visit!
Aikey Brae ranks among the TOP5 RSC in Aberdeenshire for me. A splendid location, a huge recumbent, large stones (some fallen) and great views across the countryside. Even the track through a dense woods that leads to the circle is brilliant and mysterious.
In addition to a23's directions, there is now a offical sign at the start of the field track to the circle, as Aikey Brae is part of the "The Stone Circle" trail.
This stone circle, excavated by Aubrey Burl, is now heavily overgrown. There is still a surrounding fence and a kissing gate to enter the site inside the litte wood, but inside the fence there are no traces of someone, who looks after the site in terms of cutting the grass and saplings.
So I guess that in a few years, this site will be completely vanished and overgrown, which is a pity, because what I was able to trace was quite nice and the spot in the little wood adds to the atmosphere.
