After parking the car it was a leisurely walk although bit muddy through fields and onto the moor. Weather drizzly but hey its Scotland and well worth the visit. Interesting plaques explaining the history of the stones. Enjoyable walk. Suitable for all ages.

Nice walk to the stones, damp path but worth it, fascinating to see the way the stones have been laid and the history behind them.

Well worth a visit approx return time to car park 1 hour. Currently decent walking boots (or wellies) required as very boggy in places. A few explanatory boards give plenty of information. Recommended.

Their are bunches of stones here and a fair bike to see them all, but worth it. Probably hard to ask the Neolithic folk "What were you thinking". Nonetheless, I would like to know. Style tip - bring boots for the walk, whether it has...More
