Lanyon Quoit is a dolmen in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, 2 miles southeast of Morvah. It collapsed in a storm in 1815 and was re-erected nine years later, and as a result the dolmen is now very different from its original appearance.Using our international travel planner, Penzance attractions like Lanyon Quoit can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Interesting stone circle. Has been reconstructed and lost its original size and shape but still an interesting structure. There has a layby right next to it that can fit two cars.
The quoit is very close to the road, so is easy to get to, although there is very limited parking. Lovely view and setting for this iconic piece of our history.
Aww this place is sooooo photogenic, it really is just an amazing thing to see and wonder of its use and just how they constructed it so many years ago. Its national trust but free to visit and not too far to walk, from the lay by where you can park.
Since the 70s I've been coming here ..always very peaceful and traditionally we all take a picture and rub the Quiot before heading to our Scottish home .
Amazing historical places ..strange stone formations. Wonderful for walking.
