This tone circle has a magical atmosphere. It is off the beaten track, I would recommend it to people who like ancient stone circles.

This site is a little tricky to find. Keep your eyes peeled as you drive along the A30 from Penzance to lands end. About 800m past the turning to Carn Euny, look out for the lay by on the left with a small plaque. If you reach a bend with a furniture workshop on the right, then you've gone too far! The site is over a stile and about 10 minutes walk down a clear path. We eventually reached a kind of cross roads, and on a chance took the left hand path which immediately round a bend led to a gate into the site. The other path may well have led to another entrance, but we didn't check it out! The site is interesting and well preserved. It was even better given that we were the only people there on a sunny afternoon in August, although we did meet another group coming down the path as we were leaving. This site is quite easy to visit if you can find the parking spot. We carried our 14 month old down there in a back carrier, and the walk is mostly level.

There is only room for about two cars in the layby and the area is not very well marked, apart from the beginning of the path. It took us about fifteen minutes to walk to the circle, through bracken and blackberry bushes; the ground is very uneven and there is no wheelchair access.

Boscawen-un means ‘House of the Elder Tree’ and in the early Bronze Age this circle of Granite stones was surrounded by an elder forest.

We noticed another small stone circle at the end of a path on the right, but I am not sure what it is called.

Visited with friends on a sunny afternoon. Easy to find with space for a couple of cars. Small uneven walking path, but what a great little circle! Took out our dowsing rods and had a blast! So much energy here. Very private, great place for a picnic. FREE
