Having seen a number of standing stone circles on different islands we were keen to see the Machrie standing stones on Arran. From the car park to the site is about two kilometres and the path and surrounding area is a quagmire - so make...More

Went after a lot of snow so paths very icy - wear suitable footwear. Between last single stone (end of one km walk) and the largest stone circle - keep to proper paths or you'll end up in the bog. Very photogenic so remember your...More

We went to see the stones on a very wet November walk. There is a well kept car park that was sign posted however it was not obvious if not for the sign pointing to it. It is small but it is well maintained. This...More

Even though it was pouring with rain, Machrie Moor was magical. We took public transport and the island bus service stops right at the car park on request, no need for a car! The stones themselves are a short walk from the road, only 20...More

If you're interested in stone circles, or if you are into photography, you will love this place. We were there on an unsettled day weather-wise and it made for beautiful photographs. After an easy 10 minute walk along a well-defined track through flat farmland, we...More

What a fantastic atmosphere here! Our 8 year old loved teaching from stone circle to stone circle with her cousins, trying then out for acoustics and even picnicking on them (in November!) Easy walk, great views, bit wet underfoot. Well worth a visit.

You don’t visit Arran for the glorious weather. Yes it rains a lot! This is is an easy walk to see a historic site. The stone circles tell a story and they are quite spectacular if you like that kind of thing. The path can...More
