  • By far the most imposing stones in Arran. Walk is a little over a mile from a small car park, most can manage this. We had a toddler and pram. Stones are not numerous but the effort of getting them in...  more »
  • The walk to the various stone circles was not strenuous and well worth it. The stone circles and standing stones are fantastic and set in a stunning location with fabulous views.  more »
  • It's about a 20 minute walk across a clearly marked field path to reach the stones. You need to climb a couple of stiles - not sure if the gates all open - so may be tricky for pushchairs and definite...  more »

  • This is probably the best spot on the island. Although the rings of stone are not as big as those on Orkney or the Hebrides, the scenery and settings are stunning. The stones are not protected, which means they are free to visit. Having no visitor centre makes the place feel more real and untouched. However, I must say I had a bit of a hard time to find them, which made it all more interesting. Firstly, the car park is hidden by a hedge, so I would advise setting up the navigator if you do not want to reverse. Then, along the path there are no signs (the path iteself is beautiful and you share it with lots of sheep). At first, you stumble across a ring of smaller stones, but don't get deluded/think that is it. If you carry on, you find the one with the higher stones. Overall, I think it is about half an hour to get to it (and half an hour or less to get back).
  • One of the most magnificent places I have ever been, if you are lucky enough to get it on a day with few people then stay silent for a moment and be transported back in time.
  • One of my favourite places. Lovely walk in beautiful scenery with the wonderful stone circles at the end. So peaceful especially if you go early.
  • Watch for the bogs all around the road, that's the only unpleasant struggle at around here. Great walk and views, highly recommend going here!
  • Definitely worth visiting. Make sure you take a raincoat, the site is very exposed.
