Fascinating and Accessible Prehistory

Well worth the time to walk among the numerous prehistory sites. Standing stones and cairns are easily seen and are interestingly laid out along a rough straight line.

There is such a lot to see in the glen - park at the Museum - go around there and then it is about a 2-3 mile round walk to see the main sites including stone circles and the cairns. Apart from the walk down and up again to the museum this is quite easy walking ( you can drive... More

Amazing to see so many monuments in one area, many of them quite easily accessible. Standing stones, stone circles, burial cairns, stones & rocks with "cup & ring" engravings... Fascinating.

This glen is full of prehistoric monuments, stone circles, chambered graves and sacred groves. An excellent place for all the family, easy to walk and full access to all the monuments. Stunning historic landscape.

We weren't sure what to expect, but we're pleasantly surprised and spent a lovely few hours exploring and learning. We visited the cairns, standing stones, and the highlight of the visit was hiking to the top of Dunadd Fort. The view from the top of the fort was spectacular for a rather mild hike and our three-year-son enjoyed every minute... More

We actually stayed on a farm about 100m from one stone burial mound, there were 4 more on the walk to Kilmartin village, and several standing stones around, including Temple woods which we went to several times during our stay in the Glen. Lovely walking area anyway, nice coast (at Crinan etc.) and great monuments. Recommend starting at Kilmartin museum... More

Hospitality at Duncraigaig bed and breakfast second to none. History - Stunning scenery and walks steeped in history. Walked all around standing stones, cairns, rock art and glen. Visited ancient fort where Scottish kings reputed to have been crowned and soaked up the atmosphere whilst enjoying the open views all around. Visited Tarbert, Crinan Canal and Lochgilphead. Next trip hope... More

So many sites to see in a relatively small area. Most are easily accessible with an easy walk to the sites from the parking. All the sites have information boards that give details of what was there. Fascinating history of old Dalriada!

This is one of the most historic regions of Scotland. This is an under rated region that is well worth visiting for history that goes back thousands of years. Very picturesque too.
