Depending on the time of day, you may be alone with these ancient stones standing on this ancient site. Carefully look at each stone and recall that each was chosen for a purpose by someone centuries ago. Best in the UK.

Look up Calmac website for pricing info. It may be a challenge to get over there, drive north to the Standing Stones (an hour north), explore the islands and get back. The return ferry to Isle of Skye is very early in the morning (6am when I was there) so you will probably need to stay the night unless there is a late afternoon ferry.
