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!

Took a wee while to find the stoping point for this but so glad we did . A nice walk over farmland brought us to a cairn first then on to the stones themselves . Greeat to get up close to the individual stone circles and larger standing stones . As ever dazzled by their presence and origin . Well... More

An interesting and rewarding walk to the various stone sites was a pleasant interlude in our trip to Arran. We walked to the Stone Circle in early summer just after dome wet weather. The track was boggy and good walking boots would have been a good idea. A bit spooky to think of the ancient civilization living and building on... More

These are very impressive. There is quite a wee walk to get to the stones. It is well worth it. There are a few smaller stone displays to see before you reach the main ones. The walk is through a farm so there are animals grazing as you walk past, but they are used to people & did not bother... More

Very beautiful place to see Highly recommended. It is about a 2 mile walk from the car park but well worth it once you reach the stones :)

This is what everybody says they want in an historic site, rather, prehistoric site. No admission fee, no souvenir vendors, no hot dogs, no toilets, well, maybe a toilet might be nice, The walk the day we were there had little dashes of sun, rain drops in various amounts and intensity, and a stiff cold wind that blew right in...

The car park is big enough for about 18 cars (if people park well). The route is well-marked (you can't go wrong). Once you reach the first stones, don't think you have seen it all! They are suitably impressive, but if you keep walking you will find the rest of the standing stones which are something else. Definitely worth the... More

This was a really amazing surprise! It certainly does compare with Stonehenge!! It was peaceful and tranquil and the walk to the stones enjoyed by ourselves and our dog. Dogs are requested to be on a lead which was reasonable given the vicinity of the sheep throughout the walk. The stones themselves had good information boards nearby and it is... More

The gently ascending walk is along a well defined path through farmland and onto an open moor. It's very exposed in bad weather, this is said with some feeling! None the less well worth the walk. By the final set of stones is a crumbling set of farm buildings which leave you wondering about the generations who have ecked out... More

For some reason, a wee while ago some blokes carried large stones up a long track and planted them in the ground near Machrie. The least we could do was visit and try to work out why!
