What was once a celebration twice a year, has been turned into a week long rave, with people turning up with no interest in the stones, just getting stoned and leaving all their rubbish behind human waste and used toilet paper, it's illegal to light...More

The closest you can get is 10-15 minutes walk on uneven ground.
