Easy access to this ancient stone circle, in a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains. The sheep are an extra.

Visited on a busy day (unfortunately) - but still well worth the visit. Road up is narrow making passing returning vehicles a bit fraught at times. Site is free to visit (although there is a donation box) and there is no parking fee - parking...More

Yes you can. There is a very easy route from Keswick. The footpath map is available from the Tourist Information office.
