This is not an actual Maze, but a multi ring of large rocks from all over Scotland, we visited during a long morning hike from Strathpeffer.

Neat little place to visit that we were not expecting. Each stone is from a different region of Scotland and from a different geological time. Interesting and great hike. Easy too!

A fascinating project built pre-historic monument, designed to give an insight into the design and function of stone structures of Neolithic and Bronze age cultures.

We took in the maze as part of a walk up to the top of Knockfarrel. An interesting insight into the different stones from different areas of the highlands.

My trip was with 4 kids under 7. The walk from the village up to the touchstone maze was very steep for the kids. Once the kids were there they had fun in the touchstone maze for about 20 mins. Stones are from all areas...More

Been there, it's nothing special apart the view, but lots of trees were cut, I don't know why. It's good to move out of the village and make some cardio and enjoy outdoors.
