Enchanting little walk down a wee pathway to wonder at a stone circle. If you are lucky you may see a fairy or one of them leprechauns. Cows galore in adjacent field giving knowing looks!

I wasn't expecting much but i was really surprised. The lane down to the circle is amazing - lookout for stuff in the hedges :) The circle itself is good but checkout the fairy tree at one end of the circle ( wishing box )

Very spiritual and great energy. Quiet a long walk down a narrow pathway so anyone with walking problems may find it difficult.
