After seeing the falls have a walk up to the stone circle. Beautiful walk along an old tree lined driveway. The circle is on farms land but you can get lovely picture over the fence.

This is small standing stone circle that takes some navigating to get to. Its located in Sheep field just inside Killin. I was particularly interested as there is a ancestral connection. Be sure to shut and lock the fence behind you -and if its been...More

It was amazing to stand in the middle of these ancient stones and imagine who put them there, and why. They are out in a field. I believe you can drive back there, but we walked. It's not far from the Falls of Dochart Inn.

We wanted to find the 'Scottish Stonehenge' and experience what we were told was an ancient stone circle. After a short walk along the River Dochart heading east out of Killin we found the circle. It is a magical place and is untouched by modern...More

The place is just a few hundred meters from the falls... It is accessible via an open gate. The stones are interesting but there's no explanation (but no cost, either).

Not easy to find, but if you do you will be rewarded with a quiet meadow and ancient stone circles. Really cool place and much better than the big attractions like Stonehenge. It is much smaller, but you will be the only one there!

I'm pretty good with directions. I even had a (poorly drawn) map from our hotel. But OMG! We must have tried for an hour to find these stones. I was not going to give up though. We had even been told...you will think you can't...More

If it was America, there would be neon signs and concession stands. However, it is Scotland and the stones are untouched with Cows and Sheep grazing around them.

We enjoyed the spectacular walk around Killin's outskirts, to the castle, banks of Loch Tay, the river and missed the stones. They are so small we didn't spy them in the field. Watch out for them

I read that these are dated from the Bronze Age and there are other similar stone circles in western Scotland but have no idea how and why they are there. Possibly a Pagan worship site?
