A man who has spent almost 20 years visiting historic sites has spoken of his fascination with stone circles around the North-east.
Martin Morrison, who lives in Glasgow, has visited Aberdeenshire four times over the past few years as part of his project Before Caledonia.
Martin has been to historic spots across the country, mainly neolithic and bronze age sites.
The 38-year-old said: “I’ve built up quite a bit of photography content over the years.
“I’m just an amateur, but I’ve got a deep-rooted interest in the subject.
“There are more stone circles in Aberdeenshire than anywhere else in the country.
“It’s an absolutely fascinating area.
“It’s the only place in the UK where you can find recumbent stones, but there’s also some in South-west Ireland.
“I’ve done a lot of work recently up in Aberdeenshire. It’s one of my favourite areas in the UK.”
Martin documents all the sites he visits on his Facebook group Before Caledonia, and uploads videos of his travels to his YouTube channel, of the same name, which both have more than 500 followers.
Recently he uploaded content showing Druidstone Stone Circle in Insch, Broomend of Crichie, Brandsbutt Stone and Bass of Inverurie, Memsie Round Cairn in Fraserburgh and the Wheedlemont Stones and Upper Ord Standing Stones in Rhynie.
Martin said: “We’ve all heard of Stonehenge, but when you mention other ones, such as the ones up in Aberdeenshire, people don’t have a clue they’re there.
“It’s such a unique and fascinating area.
“I’ve been up four times visiting, because there’s so much to see.”
He added:“It’s just something I do in my spare time, and I try and share all my pictures into local groups.
“It really started my interest in photography, I think the two things go quite well together.”
