Interesting find

Although you can drive here, we walked from Balmain so it was a great stop and interesting discovery. Well worth the visit.

I love history but going back this far and wondering... it is a special place for sure and so much still remains (however some of it looked like been re-done by the ministry of works back in the day). We where there alone - and that is really what makes this place so special - one can almost feel the... More

I almost hate to recommend this because it's such a special visit when you're alone. It seems the place is rarely visited, which is surprising to me but part of what makes it special. It's easy to find--readily sign-posted--and if you're in the Urquhart Castle area, it's worth a stop for some quite time away from the tourist crowds.

We had a private guide take us hear and we enjoyed this all by ourselves! It is fantastic! you can touch the stones and see how the opening of the burial mound of the rocks lines up with the winter solstice. What an awesome experience. So close to Loch Ness visitor center and to our BB Loch Ness Inn. My... More

Very interesting sight near Loch Ness. I was on a bus tour and they took us there, so it might be a tad difficult to reach, but nonetheless would recommend going if you have a chance. It's obviously just rocks, but it's very old and fascinating!

Of modest interest but worthy of preservation. Not sure if I can fill this space with 100 words about the artefact.

Having read about the chambered cairn we decided to take a look. Glad we did. Nothing fancy, just a notice board and then the cairn itself. Understated and interesting. No bells owe whistles just a straight forward piece of history.

A neat site set in an even near setting, amongst rolling hills, sheep and cattle. A most peaceful place, well off the beaten path. You'll probably be alone out there. There are no fences holding you back , so you're free to walk right up and touch the site. Almost 4000 years old, it's in remarkably great shape. Go see... More
