Hard (for me). Probably moderate for most people. (There are a number of different routes though).

• What was your immediate reaction upon reaching the stone circle?
Wow, beautiful (the whole thing, the circle in its setting)

• Was there anything you feel your couldn’t see as it was blocked?
No. (Load of schoolkids all over it to start with though)

• Did the monument make you feel emotionally different in a particular way? E.g. scared, small, insignificant, made you want to alter the volume of your voice?
Maybe the voice, a bit. But generally just happy to be there and appreciate it.

• Is there anything else you wish to add?
Gawd bless the much maligned hippies who lived there so long and were central in keeping the quarrying at bay. The place is all about it's setting, and they saved it.
