Temple Wood Stone Circle On Visit To Kilmartin Glen Near Kintyre Argyll Scotland

Tour Scotland travel video clip, with Scottish music, of Temple Wood stone circle on ancestry visit to Kilmartin Glen near Kintyre in Argyll. Also known as Half Moon Wood the ancient site contains a ring of standing stones about 40 feet in diameter. In the centre is a burial cist surrounded by a circle of stones about 10 feet in diameter. Other later burials are associated with the circle which may have been built around 3000 BC. The name of the site originates in the 19th century, coinciding with the planting of trees around the circles, and has no relevance to the purpose of the site. Kilmartin Glen has the most important concentration of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in mainland Scotland.
