  • It is said that this once was the home of the real King Arthur of Camelot (twisted marsh) A druid, Celtic warrior. Artúr mac Aedan of Dalriada.
  • Fairly steep, but short walk with lovely views and a great place to learn about some of Scotland's past.
  • Love the fact that this place has not been reconstructed or 'cleaned up'.
  • Historic capital of the Scots, who gave their name to Scotland. A must see if you're passing or visiting the area. Kilmartin is the richest area of pre-history on mainland Scotland going back 5,000 years. More details at Kilmartin museum 2 miles up the road.
  • One of the best historical places we visited in Scotland. It was not on our bucket list but a lady at the Kilmartin Museum told us to check it out. I'm glad we did. She said the views are what Scotland looked like a long time ago. Not only were their views very impressive but the information about the historical ruins was also very interesting.
