The Mull Circle

Chambered Cairn


Visited 26th August 2003: This place is mad. It's so close to a stone circle, but it ain't. The setting is spectacular, high above Port Erin with views out to the Calf of Man. There's a lot of sea visible, and with the crest of the hill on the landward side of the circle it seems reasonable to assume that the site is orientated towards the coast.

As well as being spectacular and special, Meayll is very difficult to do any justice to on 'film'. It's definitely one of those optimised for 3D sites, where walking among the stones is the only way to really figure it out. We got a bit of sunshine, and it all felt very good. It goes without saying that Meayll is megalithic Mann royalty. Blinkin' great!

A word of warning for anyone with limited mobility; the distance from the road to the circle is relatively short, but it's entirely made up of a steep incline. Not at all wheelchair friendly.
