  • There is a small parking area (3-4 cars) right beside the road. The stone circle can be reached after just 100m or so. It's fine but not overwhelming.
  • Very nice and tranquil place! Beautiful landscape and interesting history. It was not much information at the site so I recommend reading about it before the visit. Easy to find and parking is free. When we visited it was no other people there, a great contrast to Stonehenge where it was crowded.
  • A lovely perfectly formed stone circle they don't make Em like this anymore as with any circle it can be ruined when you approach and there's people already there my advice is to strip off and start dancing around naked it's soon clears them off.
  • A beautiful setting for these Standing stones. They are magnificent well preserved circle.
  • Lovely place and for those whom love "energy flows", just amaizing
