Its smaller than I thought it was going to be. But gosh the historical significance of it and its age. Wow! It doesn't look well visited which is a shame. Never seen somewhere so old. Worth a visit just for that!

This place reminded me of Stonehenge with the stone circles. At one point our tour guide said that this place was referenced in The Outlander tv show. It was a place of great history and definitely worth seeing.

Tucked away from the mainroad you can find this little gem. Nice enegry and i am always in awe when things are that old. Parking good and just a small walk.

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!
