A couple of standing stones that are near to the Kingarth hotel and opposite Bute's airstrip. If you add in the walk along to the other set of standing stones it may be a decent walk, other wise it's a quick stop which won't take...More

Standing in a field overlooking Etterick Bay A picturesque drive from Port Bannantyne brings you to the stones. However you could miss them as not really well signposted. Interesting enough but more could be done around them to encourage visitors.

It is worth checking the location of the car park (right opposite the end of the runway) before travel as is a difficult entrance to see, obviously if walking this isnt so much of an issue. There is information posted about the stones which is...More
