Ancient monuments

My sister and I are planning to hire a taxi to take us to the various monolithic and prehistoric sites in the Penzance area. We want to make the most of our taxi time by visiting sites that are close to the road so that we don't have to spend a lot of time walking to the site. Can anyone make recommendations about sites or a map that would allow me to locate them? Thank you.

The Merry Maidens stone circle near Moushole is about a minute's walk from a parking area and Tregiffian Burial Chamber is just down the road, in fact virtually under the road. The Ballowall Barrow/Carn Gloose is right next to a road with a layby close. There is parking next to Trethevy Quoit. The last three of these are under the care of Engiish Heritage and are described on their website. The first is easily Goolged. Hope this helps
