However, these do fit the description and are easy to find although there is a lot of sundry growth around them which might have been removed with a little cutting tool.

Don't expect forestation around the remaining stones - it's been felled, The undergrowth is uneven and currently has much new growth ferns sprouting up.

It's interesting, but the damage done by centuries of tourists have somewhat taken their toll. Don't get too excited, but if you're nearby (basically, if you're on Bute), and if you find ancient standing stones interesting, it's only a short walk from the rudimentary car park, just off the road. (This is opposite Bute airfield, so if you can't see a windsock, you're nowhere near!)

Visited the stones 20-03-19.When we got there was a bit suprised.Workmen there thay had chopped all the trees down around them.So had to stand on road and look at them as thay were clearing the logs up.Not as spooky now and will be easier to find .

Very mysterious stone circle in the middle of a deep wood. A very beautiful site set in a lovely part of the island.

Right next to the car park, can't miss them. I'm sure there are better, but alright if you are passing and you have 10 mins to fill.

The stones are easy to find. Turn down to St Blanes Church - signposted. On the right is a long thin grass field with a wind sock. Other side of the road, a track and muddy parking. You have arrived. Stones in the bracken to the right facing down the track to the other stones ....

Seen lots of standing stones, none in such a setting though -maybe it was just the pouring rain and mist that gave it the spooky atmosphere?

Enjoyed our visit on the way to St Blane's Chapel. Had a bit of trouble to find them as sign post was knocked over but eventually found them by looking at notice board map. Stones are within easy walking distance to the car and my husband was able to walk to them. We were glad to get some good photos.

They are hard to spot; we drove past them a couple of times (not far from the junction by the graveyard; opposite the air strip; go through the gap). Small car park and a minute walk to the stones. Very atmospheric spot with the dark wood surrounding the stones. It's easy to let your imagination run wild given the location! One of the stones had offerings placed on it (some flowers and corn).
