You need to have a good imagination here, even with the signboards. Not sure if all the stones are still there, supposed to at least 50, but I couldn't see that many. £1.00 charge per person a bit steep. On the plus side, great views...More

Well worth having a look at this ancient site. Some lovely views and walks around it. Entrance was free, there are some styles to climb over and a short walk from the main road to get to it.

Remains of a stone circle in a field beside a farmhouse that does bed and breakfast. A nice place to stay, but you can visit the stone circle staying or not.
