Magical location with numerous stone circles of different types. A must visit destination for the Isle of Arran: you can explore the different circles and read informative boards on the age and purpose of the circles and the people who built them. It's a good...More

Take a moment to acknowledge that this place is thousands of years old. There are multiple sites to explore, all at no charge. Go late in the day when it’s wet and windy and you won’t be distracted by anyone else

Walk from the car park was nice and relaxing through farm and moorland. Wear walking boots. The stones were amazing to see. Information boards were informative. More than just standing stones which is what I had expected. Clearly had been a village here and was...More

First of all, after reading the poor reviews, I got a little cross with the comments. Directions are clear. It clearly states the stones are a 1km walk from the car park and across moors, so obviously it could get wet...its on peat too so...More
