Stones you might say. Yes, but stones with a difference. They give you an insight to those who came before us and had the vision to place stones in an amazing location.

Great accessible destination. Get up close with the rock formations. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside sprinkled with sheep.

I make a quick visit in the evening sun and was anything but disappointed. There was a mystical feel to the place with views that took my breath away. This is a real gem of a photo opportunity and worth a stop by if you...More

Great straight forward walk from Keswick, along the old railway and up a shallow slope. Road goes all the way to the top if you wanted to take a car or taxi. Peace slightly disturbed by Drones, which in my humble opinion should be banned...More

On a lovely sunny day in May, stood in the centre of a place with such a long history, the views are awe inspiring.

We enjoyed the short hike to the circle, which is much more accessible than many such historic structures. Set in a field surrounded by sheep farms, it is lovely and uncrowded.

Breathtaking views and very atmospheric. Can be quite busy at the height of the season but so very beautiful. I could have spent all day there.

Not only is this historical site interesting, the view is incredible. Visit each gate to read a piece of the stone circles history. Fascinating how diverse the reactions were our fellow visitors. You can drive or bike from Keswick to the stones.

It would not be suitable for a wheelchair. There is a narrow walk through gate and then a lumpy bumpy walk to the stone circle.

Very difficult with a wheelchair
The last time I visited the stone circle, the footpath was **very** muddy, what's it like now and is it suitable for a wheelchair now?

Knowing the lakes its likely to be muddy most of the time.
