About this event
This astronomically aligned stone circle, a short walk from Glasgow city centre, and overlooking the M8 motorway, was a notable city landmark, with its construction involving helicopters part of Glasgow’s modern lore. This circle of 18 standing stones was used by pagan groups, astronomers, dog walkers, and suburban drinkers and crisp eaters over 37 years. The central stone became a memorial for members of a Glasgow family and ashes were scattered there.
However, in April 2016, the circle underwent a controlled dismantlement in advance of the demolition and rebuilding of Sighthill by Glasgow City Council.
