The Gouklan Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

03/06/2018 - Great Cumbrae is a lovely island just a short ferry ride away from Largs. The ferries are very frequent and cheap (about £6.00 return for the two for us). You don't really need a car on here. A lot of folk seem to go to hire a bike in the town of Millport (buses run there and back from the ferry) and then spend the day cycling round the island.

The walk on quiet county roads to Craigengour Wood is nice. Small paths lead you through the trees to the standing stone, which is near the far end.

At about 6ft tall, it's a good sized stone. I was really taken with it's surroundings. It stands in a little clearing protected by lovely tall trees. I think they look after the stone well, as do the people of Great Cumbrae. It has a small info board next to it with a square thingy you can point your phone at to get more information. The back of the stone has a lot of initials on it, don't know why.

It's a nice stone as is the whole island. Good views from the top and the cathedral in Millport is worth a visit too.

Castle Hill (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

02/06/2018 - Nice little hillfort above Largs. Easy access from Douglas Park below. Path is a little steep in places. Great views from it and a fine place for a sit. thelonious Posted by thelonious
