Full Description

NH70SE 4 75 00.

The Rath of Kingussie, a circle of standing stones used for judicial purposes. In 1380 Alexander Stewart, Lord of Badenoch held a court of regality here. "The Raich is still known, but the stones are gone". Henshall (A S Henshall 1963) suggests that the stones "may be the remains of a chambered cairn."
