If spooky is what you are looking for this is the place to go. We love standing stones and have gone to them all over Scotland from Orkney to the Outer hebrides, but this ring I dont like. It is always dark, even in summer,...More

Standing in a field overlooking Etterick Bay A picturesque drive from Port Bannantyne brings you to the stones. However you could miss them as not really well signposted. Interesting enough but more could be done around them to encourage visitors.

All Standing Stones are full of mystery - who put them there, and why? There is a definite feeling of peace, yet also some spookiness. If you are interested in Ancient History, this is the place for you.

The weather broke long enough for a wander around the Standing Stones of Kingarth. A short walk from the road but far enough for the mystery to envelop you, particularly on a wet and misty afternoon. Also handy for the airport!!

We walked to the stones on a very hot day, but they are coolly sited in a quiet grove of trees. Well worth the visit if you are into your standing stones like we are!

It's about 7 miles, the roads are narrow but the island has fabulous over land walks. You can take the bus to kingarth and walk in 5-10 minutes. I found it hard to get walking maps paths online, I think a good OS map would... More
