the view from the stone both down and along the loch with the hills around was superb. The car park at the bottom said 100 metres and it was more like 300 so go to the top. Do NOT park and PAY at the visitor centre , miles away and all the car parks near the stone albeit along a narrow and bumpy road are FREE so rather odd all round but do not be put off . Some interesting history here , heavily pro scottish but hey we are in Scotland!

Great walks with colour coded paths, marked out by wooden poles, so you know you are on the right track. Spectacular views to be had.

We had a lovely day here. First we did the long walk around the loch. Beautiful views and a very varied walk. We did the raiders trail in the car which was a good way to see different places and stop off in places we wanted to look at. We stopped at Otter Pool which was beautiful, especially in the sunshine.

This was an unexpected day out but well worth it. Go past the main car park, past second car park as far as you can go (my partner cannot walk too far). There is a wee path to the right of the Merrick trail follow that and there it is! Goosebumps on seeing the stone, views are spectacular and the loch was so still it was idyllic. Gorgeous get away spot. You should definitely see this.

Walk with buggy and family. But if a walk to lick trool but you can take car. Bruce's stone start of Merrick hill climb. View over lunch great. Other side has part of southern upland walk and battlesite where Robert the Bruce defeated an English army. Back to visitor centre for tea. 7 stands routes bur bike hire at kirroughtree centre if needed. Check galloway forest park for times.
