Stone Circle


Indeed, blink and you WILL miss it! Theres a nice wee carpark south of the bump at the southern edge of the virtually absent stone circle, only reeally noticeable by virtue of the levelled platform on which it is built and a large wheelie-bin. From the carpark there is a nature trail into what is currently treeless forestry land in which is the long cairn of Carinish complete with practically prehistoric information sign. Not in the best state with lots of temporary shelters built into it and peat encroaching its tail. Forty odd metres to north of site is peat cuttings where neolithic settlement was found. What more could you ask for - a cairn (a heavily mucked about pile of stones), a stone circle (or whats left of it) and a settlement site (well, some peat cuttings).
Beware - the cairn is off the trail and if you're walking out to it, as with most sites in the region, weat suitable footwear as its a bit wet even in summer.
