This site is well worth a visit. Lots of standing stones intact and still in position. Great atmosphere could just imagine being there when it was being built....amazing so much remains after thousands of years..not to bad to get to from regular parking...flat walk over (was muddy tho) fields..but there is disabled parking at the site and access isn't too...

Once you find it... behind the museum, and walk about a half mile... to your left... past the preschool... it's fantastic!!! Wear rubber boots, as you pass farmland, muddy walkways.... but well worth it... if you love history!!!

Unlike most other stone circles i have seen this one stands in a small wooded copse within a circle of small stones and boulders. it is quite a sight and very peaceful

This is history you can touch. Standing in the Temple Wood, approaching dusk, you can feel the past swirl about you. It is easy to imagine the rights that must have been performed here. Very easy to get to, yet wildly under patronised, this is an incredible experience for young and old!

Amazing stone circle allowing hands on experience unlike Stonehenge. Magical and mystical valley. Those with no imagination might think " what is the big deal"? but this is an amazing relic of thousands of years ago culture. Very accessible with free parking nearby and short walk. Needs about 30 mins. Very profound for those with genealogical ties to area.

Temple Wood Stone Circle is set in the very interesting and beautiful Kilmartin Glen. There is lots to see and do in this area, especially if you enjoy a walk. There is a car park with an area for coaches as well as cars, which can be very busy in the tourist season, but Temple Wood is well worth a... More

Easy parking; well marked. Most ancient stone circles in UK. There are some inscribed marks on the stones. The surrounding trees were planted much later. All in The Kilmartin Glen area.
