  • Really beautiful but relatively small dolmens, which can be seen only from a distance, because he is obviously in a fenced private property. There's not really parking.

  • We were driving back from Men-a-tol and saw Lanyon Quoit from the road. We parked in a lay by right next to the style which led straight to it. By this time it was tipping it down with rain, so we ran...  more »
  • It takes a lot of patience to find it because it is not signposted and there isn't even a rest stop. But it's awesome to see also because it is perfectly preserved (and it is not crowded with tourists). The place deserves more consideration than it has.

  • This place is rather isolated, yet good to reach by car. It seems to get not so much visitors. I found it quite photogenic. It's just a few steps beside the road where you can park in a lay-by.
  • A nice, well preserved landmark with two lay-bys very close for parking. Quite boggy and cow-pooey; expect to take home a muddy dog. Probably not worth driving out just to see this, but there are plenty of other english heritage & national trust sites nearby.
  • Historic and isolated, a good place for peace and quiet most of the time.
  • Easy to access with limited parking on the road just north of the field. Very interesting place.
  • It's a pity because in impossible to reach on foot
