24/09/2014 - I agree with Carl, this site is well worth a visit. Looking down from the info board the site doesn't look much but strolling around the Neolithic farm I felt a nice vibe. Very interesting houses surrounded by walled fields. The location is fantastic as well.

There is a small layby you can park in with an information board.
The info board states the farm was in use between 3,000bc and 1,500 bc
The site is signposted.
I walked up the hill and was able to look down on the village.
There are the remains of 3 houses and a cairn. The cairn is about 5 metres across.
The largest house is similar to the one at Stanydale – oval in shape – about 5m x 8m.
I was pleasantly surprised by this site and would certainly recommend a visit.
