Beautiful scenery, gorgeous at sunset. Car park close by and can also overlook the two lochs next to it.

Great site.
Oct 2020
You can get here via a pathway from the car park across the road. The path around the stones is being preserved, so there is a fence surrounding the stones, but you can still walk around the site.

What a site
Oct 2020
I have been to stonehenge but this place you could get closer plus it is older. There is ample parking and a short walk across the road to the site. foot path is good and the scenary around is beautiful as well.

Fascinating remnant of Orkney’s Neolithic past
Oct 2020 • Solo
With visitor numbers down due to the virus couldn’t have found a better time to visit these sites. Time it right and you’ll have the place almost to yourself with incredible views across the adjacent lochs as far as the looming mountains of Hoy to the South. The place is uncluttered by commercialism and allows the visitor to just to stand back in wonder at how and why this site was constructed. Open all year round with no restrictions it is advised that one sticks to the path but unlike say Stonehenge one can get up close to these stones.

A fascinating site

We enjoyed a 4 miles walk around the sites here. We returned at sunset as well for a fascinating view of these stones.

Lovely walk
Sep 2020
We parked up and had a little look at the info board, then followed the walkway up to the site, the main path around the site is currently being rested so you can only walk around the outside of the site.

FUN - even in the rain!

Came here on a day trip to the islands - and he found his inner outlander!
It rained horizontally for 10 mins then the clouds cleared to reveal stunning surroundings.

Hmmmm
Sep 2020 • Couples
Yes there is a ring of stones. Car park is some 450m away. Disappointing as although you can walk around the outsode there is not a lot to look at. Somewhat like Stonehenge where the atmosphere is lost by not being in the inner circle

An Orkney 'must see'!
Aug 2020 • Solo
A 'must see' when visiting Orkney.

Beautiful purple heather surrounds the ring in August and on a clear day, the sunsets can be stunning.

When safety measures are lifted, the Ranger talks are well worth coming to. Check local Tourist Info for details.

Be thoughtful of others and use the designated car park not the passing places to park your car.
