  • A lovely walk over farm fields to impressive standing stones & circles. Beautiful surroundings. So glad we did this while visiting Arran.  more »
  • Beautiful walk with fantastic views of hills, fields and the sea. Stones well worth a visit, the place itself is very peaceful and wonderful to think how long those stones have been there and imagine ...  more »
  • After a short walk from the signposted car park, you enter a continuously settled landscape dating back 5000years. Six main stones circles with other standing stones and hut circles lie on a small hil...  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.
  • Easy walk lovely location
  • 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!
