We visited Machrie Moor on a rainy day, but it was even more beautiful. The rain and mist which lay over the fields made it look more mysterious than on a sunny day.

This is a series of sites incorporating a pleasant walk through the countryside. The paths are good even in poor weather. well worth the effort.

Went here on our bikes as we were costing the caves the other side of the road further south. Quite a bit up from the car park but worth walk/cycle for the views and circles.

The stones are quite amazing to see no matter how many there are. It makes you wonder how they got them there when quarrying on the island didn't begin until the 1800's (according to the local historian that gives the tour of the Brodick Castle)....More

The walk to the Machrie Moor Stone Circles is easy even for unexperienced visitors. There are several stone circles to be seen, but the main attraction is an abandoned farm complex. Mesmerizing!

The path to the Standing Stones is fairly easy but it is very boggy, and sturdy waterproof shoes are an essential. However, the walk is worth it as there are many standing stones of different sizes and not only historic but very photogenic.

Went after a lot of snow so paths very icy - wear suitable footwear. Between last single stone (end of one km walk) and the largest stone circle - keep to proper paths or you'll end up in the bog. Very photogenic so remember your...More

We went to see the stones on a very wet November walk. There is a well kept car park that was sign posted however it was not obvious if not for the sign pointing to it. It is small but it is well maintained. This...More

Even though it was pouring with rain, Machrie Moor was magical. We took public transport and the island bus service stops right at the car park on request, no need for a car! The stones themselves are a short walk from the road, only 20...More
