GPS lies, you need to exit A76 on to Glasgow Road and take your second left (right over the bridge) ... where that road intersects B729, park right there on the corner. You'll see a gate in the southeast, that's your field of stones. The...More

We barely found the place. It is in the middle of a field with a tiny little sign on the fence next to our road. I think there might be another entrance, but we didn't find it. There wasn't anything explaining what you were looking...More

Just north of Dumfries, the modern road follows the path of an ancient way. This passes between the site if a Holy Wood and the 12 apostles. Whilst this is a modern name for a much more ancient site, if you bring your imagination as...More
