Great even on a wet day.

6 circles or groups of stones over about a mile's walk from the car on a good path. The backdrop of the hills make for great pictures and the moody weather adds to the atmosphere.

Throughly enjoyed this walk later in the evening. Without a car this may be difficult to find. Easily accessible from the car park the path is very easy to follow, I do agree with earlier reviews that it is not well posted after the sign that advises another 1km ahead. Many other stones to view on the way to the... More

This is one of the easiest, yet most interesting walks to do on Arran. Terrain is flat with a few stiles, so easy for children / less able walkers, and you are rewarded with remains of a neolithic burial cairn, countless (well signposted) stone circles and of course, gape in awe at the standing stones. If you get the bus,... More

This is a pleasant walk across fields to standing stones that are 4,500 years old set in the dramatic Arran landscape. No reason not to like it! Dogs have to stay on leads

The stones are a mile or so's walk from the car park. There are a few different sets of stones within close proximity of each other. The walk is pretty easy - there were a few puddles and muddy patches due to the rather copious quantities of rain. The stones are certainly worth a visit.

There was a sizeable car park at the start of the walk but not much information at this stage. The farm track was obvious so I embarked on my walk to find the stone circles. After about 3/4 mile, there was a chambered cairn, surrounded by a circle of stones, but having seen occasional pictures, back in Brodick tourist office,... More

The minus first - the car park is too small The walk to the stones is quite easy and the views are stunning. The stones are very interesting - particularly the last group

This is a beautiful and mystic setting out on the moors, providing us with an hour or so of peaceful walking on easy paths. The stones are dramatic, and the cairns and circles quite awe inspiring. Take time to sit and meditate.... well worth it. Go early if you want the place to yourself, as in school holidays (now) it... More

The walk to the stone circles took about 80 mins - there were lots of circles and information boards along the way! Parked by the main road and the walked through farming - sheep property to see the stone circles- a few stiles to climb along the way!
