Hah! Well done for resurrecting this venerable old thread Drew - and good that it now has some Scottish examples.
Here's my enquiry from the Druid Folly thread, re:-

http://www.stonor.com/stonor_stone_circle.htm
The stone circle at Stonor House in Oxfordshire was apparently moved from its original site after the chapel was built there. One of the stones was incorporated into the chapel as a corner stone. My enquiry was to ask if there are other examples of stone circles that had actually been moved in this way rather than buried or destroyed - and do they still count (here) as an ancient site.
