Najväčšia pevnosť v strednej európe a možná aj v európe a my to nevieme využiť. Je pravda, že sa toho už veľa zmenilo a je vidieť prácu čo tu odviedli - klubúk dolu pred ich prácou. Vadia a špatia v tom pevnostnom systéme všetky firmy a súkromné bývania. Toto by tu nemalo čo robiť. Mali by sa páni z mesta zamyslieť či to tam patrí !!!!???? Videl som už aj iné pevnosti podobné v Komárne ale neboli rozpredané. Celý pevnostný systém by mohol byť zlatou baňou pre mesto. Turisti radi vidia históriu a prinesú peniaze a pre miestnych prácu, len to treba s rozumom využiť.

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
