Standing Stones, Machrie Moor, Isle of Arran

The Machrie moor stone circles are well worth a look. Just after the Machrie Golf course there is a lovely little cafe and teashop just before you get there. Which is worth a visit to refresh yourself before and after you walk to the circles.

The first stone circle is about a 15 minute walk from the Car park, with a fairly clearly marked trail to find the others. All in all it is about an hours walk to get to the furthest circle, of which there are about 7 circles and megaliths altogether, fairly evenly spaced, so you can have a bit of a breath catcher between circles. The walk takes you through sheep fields, past wild orchids and wild flowers. With lovely scenery. As you get slightly higher you can see the sea in the distance.

There is also a little ruined farm building, which is marked as no entry, and there are some very clearly dangerous elements in this, but some interesting compositions on the bricks outside or using this as a backdrop.

Wellies will be necessary during wet periods, but on the whole it is a fairly established gravel walkway.

Again very popular with tourists and walkers, and midges and horseflies.
