Tyrebagger Stone Circle

Dyce, United Kingdom

Unknown to most Aberdonians, the relatively intact and well preserved Tyrebagger Stone Circle stands on a hillside within a mile or two of busy Aberdeen International Airport. Access to the site will require at least a 10-15 minute walk as it is impossible to reach it directly by car. The closest point where it may be possible to park is outside the Aberdeen Airpark facility in a disused quarry to the east. From there, good farm tracks lead to the stones. The final hundred metres require you to climb the permanently chained gate illustrated below and walk across a field of springy rough pasture.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
