  • I love it here. I think it's wonderful to be able to wander around these ancient stones and feel the energy. If you're an Outlander fan, this place has even more meaning. But, this place is beginning to be better known, and tour busses and crowds are more common here in 2017 than they were at my last visit in 2013.
  • Amazing to see something that old. Only one sign, would be great to have a few smaller signs at the tombs explaining a bit more. Beautiful surrounding countryside
  • Super cool burial Cairns in great condition. They are massive and give such a sense of awe. There is only one sign there so worth reading up on them before you go.
  • A place steeped In history. Clava cairns was the inspiration behind Craigh nah dun in outlander. The stones date back to bronze age.
  • A mystical, inspiring place. Definitely worth a visit
