Definitely a must see. I also met a lovely man and his wife and explained of tales of this and other nearby sites. And not just the stones themselves but that they are in a secluded and peaceful place. You forget yourself for a while...
After a little walk in the countryside, you can admire this Neolithic or Bronze Age site, so unique with the famous "stone with a hole" and some other standing stones. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to see.
We were in the area birding and we did see a few smashing species on our walk around the area.Easy roadside parking and few other people around, an in trigging place at any time but in the quiet and peaceful land always a draw. The...More
A holed stone with 'anchor' stones either side. Pass through the hole for healing as generations have done. A lovely walk from the road and the site is signed over a stile when you get to it. Well worth the 15 minute walk.
A legend states that it is lucky to crawl through the hole 3 times. It is a struggle, a big person would never climb through. Set near the old Ding Dong mine and not too far from a lovely farmhouse selling cream teas.
We took a walk to Men - An - tol then onto the Ding - Dong mines and back round to the standing stone circle and nine maidens. It was a blustery but beautiful day. If you are prepared with the correct footwear ( waterproof...More
If you are not into ancient megalithic monuments or countryside walks then this may not be worth your effort to see. However if you are this place is a delight, especially on a clear sunny day. Of course Cornwall is full of such monuments, so...More
While I didn't have time to drive all the way out to Stonehenge, I did take some time to visit this Iron Age curiosity. Literally out in the middle of a cow-pie-decorated field, it's silent, still, and such a fun little experience. If you're in...More

There is an open top bus which travels the back road to Landsend from St.Ives, B3306. This stops at Zennor (visit the church to see the mermaid chair) from here you can walk to Zennor Quoit. The Men-an Tol is quite a long walk off this route, about 2 miles from Morvah. This bus route is a fantastic trip with beautiful scenery. If you take the main bus rout from Penzance to Sennen get off at Crows-an-wra and a short walk will bring you to Boscawen-Un stone circle, my favorite circle in Cornwall. See you in August, I live in St.Ives.
