Duddo Five Stones, Duddo

Duddo Five Stones is a stone circle north of Duddo in North Northumberland, approximately 4miles (6km) South of the Scottish Border. The stones were known as the Four Stones until 1903, when the fifth stone was re-erected to improve the skyline. There were originally seven stones, the empty sockets of two stones being found on the western side during excavation in the 1890s
The stones themselves are a soft sandstone and have become deeply fissured by natural weathering since erection in the Early Bronze Age approximately 4000 years ago
The site of the Duddo Stones offers panoramic views of the Cheviot Hills to the South and the Lammermuir Hills to the north
The circle is accessible via the B5364 road, through a gate and up a path. The stones are on private land with no formal right-of way, but the landowner has cleared a permissive path across the field to the stones.

  • Interesting site, spectacular views across the borders and Northumbrian countryside. Nothing there except the stones and the views but it made a refreshing change. The path across the 3 fields to get there was clear but a little rough, not really suitable for a buggy and definitely not a wheel chair. Our 3 year old managed the walk there but needed a shoulder ride back. Lovely way to spend an hour.
  • It’s a nice almost complete stone circle 5 of 7 stones. If it’s a wet day be prepared to walk a little in the mud. It’s not the largest circle or most scenic but being perched on the top of the hill does give it a nice look. If you have the time and are passing through it’s nice to stop by. Note it’s private property so be mindful since the owners are letting you on their land. Entry is from the south. Closest road is posted B654 there will be a signs from there
