I am interested in gathering more knowledge of the associated phenomena around ancient stone circles. Am about to make an offer on a piece of land which has the remains of a ruined circle on it in northern scotland.

Only one stone still stands, the rest have been unfortunately ruined by farmers.

It would be my intention to restore some of it, and protect the remaining stone.

Obviously, I am not going to give away my potentially new home by mentioning the site. But, should I be wary of buying a house with this close by on its land?

I would consider it as living on a historical site that had meaning to the people who were once there. How big is the circle and the remaining stone?

I'm by no means an authority, but my guess is that you'd want to see if the site is listed on some registry that would lead to legal restrictions as might be encountered when purchasing a historic home.

Yeah and if there's nothing listed don't say anything.

Build a shed around it or something.

Edit:

Also unless you are a professional and have a way of cataloging and taking thorough pictures...don't restore it.

You might deface it in a way that will make it lose historical details.

Site was listed as a scheduled monument in the 60s. It's a real shame as someone cracked the recumbent stone by place a fire on it. They think there may have been 12 stones, with a circle diameter of 75 ft. Most of the field has been cleared and the stones broken or used for building through the centuries. Evidence of burials have been picked up in the fields surrounding, with various cairns, etc.

When I say restore, I mean improve its surrounding area as without some management it could be further damaged by encroaching trees.

I am very aware of the legislation around scheduled monuments, but am more nervous of potential paranormal events and phenomena...and those who may wish to use it ceremonially.

Anyone have any knowledge there?

Kind of neat. Just don't be telling the government about it or you will not be able to dig at all on the property. They won't even let you put it back together and won't have anyone else come in and investigate it either. It will just sit there and get your temper up because nothing will get done.

When restoring it just say you are trying to build a stone circle replica, don't say there was one there before.

Maybe camp out there for a night or two just to make sure you aren't going to end up shacking up with some angry 14th century Scotsman
Try before you buy or something

Here's a Wikipedia on "Scheduled Monuments"

en.wikipedia.org...

Maybe you could find a legal wiki about it somewhere.

I live in Texas so obviously I'm not too keen on the U.K. legal mumbo.

Thanks.

Have already done the legal and commercial diligence behind buying it

The legal system here means that an offer on property is binding. You can't back out.

So before you get close to mentioning money, you have it all surveyed and checked legally.

My last bit of nervousness is around potential paranormal phenomena because I am a total wus!

I can't find any in depth sites for anything paranormal regarding the stones. Most of them I found don't really have sources or even history.

I did find this old ATS topics though...maybe you'll find something in them?

Thanks. A stone like that has been found on the property. Reasonably similar to the one shown in the first thread you mention.

What you do is this. You gather up your gumption and merely ignore the paranormal threat, as generally speaking an awful lot of what you hear about this that and the other is BUNKUM, and you start with a position of absolute fearlessness.

Then, you call in some help from people who know about this specific kind of archeological site, and get their take on how best to go about maintaining what remains of its intrinsic value. A beardy fellow in a bad pullover can usually be found at your local museum, or at a university campus. Many of those have both telephones, AND Facepages these days, so hunting them down for a comment is not as taxing as it might first appear. Also, if you really respect the place, and the ancestry and history of it, not to mention the cultural importance it may have for some, then you need to be aware that if there are groups looking to use the site (respectfully) for ritual (as long as no laws are being broken of course), that you might need to consider allowing that to go ahead.

If you can comfortably get to grips with that, then I do not see you having a problem with owning the land.

I imagine that there are laws against doing anything with the stones, including restoration, unless permitted.

Ancient monuments in England and Wales are afforded special protection. In Scotland you can probably get away with sticking a wind farm on top of it!

Edit to add that your solicitor acting on your behalf in buying the land would be able to advise on monument legality.

I wouldn't worry about any unwanted paranormal events. The stone could well be placed on a ley line (energy centre) and could be useful for doing your own meditating/connecting to the gaia.

I'm from scotland, how far up north? Pm me if you don't wish to say on here

I can kind of take a guess at the property you're interested in, and I would say that's a lot of pounds to spend on something you're unsure of. The stone looks far away from the main house, you could likely ignore it. I find the tree located close by, at the property I'm thinking of, the stone of greater interest than the stone itself.

Know which one you are talking about - lovely place. The one we may have is enclosed by trees. Good guess though - not too many miles out.

Maybe get in touch with past owners of the property and see if they had any weirdness in regard to the stone? A friend in the UK has said tome that the worst problem with owning a property like this is that once in awhile a group of young would be pagans would come to the site and leave a mess.
