We visited on a very warm day, and it seemed quite a way to the first circle. We could see the next and I ‘condescended’ to walk to it! Then we could see another. And some standing stones! So you have to walk a way...More

I loved these stone circles. Very beautiful, spiritual place. A long walk however to get there, at least half an hour each way. Beautiful wildlife on the walk but do keep dogs on a lead. Not suitable for anyone who can't walk for an hour...More

Visited today and was the second car there. Felt that there was nobody around for miles as there are a couple of turns on the path and a couple of hills and dips. Glad that I got to enjoy it in relative peace, in what...More

Lovely walk through the fields with other old circles and cairns along the paths. The actual stones are good and photogenic. Easy parked and signposted. Bit of a walk for any disabled people. Good couple hours spent.

If you walk the full track of around 1.5 miles ( each way ) you see around five different stone circles. There's not a lot of info but then little is known about them. We had recently seen the Callinish standing stones on Lewis and...More

We visited Machrie Moor on a rainy day, but it was even more beautiful. The rain and mist which lay over the fields made it look more mysterious than on a sunny day.

This is a series of sites incorporating a pleasant walk through the countryside. The paths are good even in poor weather. well worth the effort.

Went here on our bikes as we were costing the caves the other side of the road further south. Quite a bit up from the car park but worth walk/cycle for the views and circles.

The stones are quite amazing to see no matter how many there are. It makes you wonder how they got them there when quarrying on the island didn't begin until the 1800's (according to the local historian that gives the tour of the Brodick Castle)....More
