Guidelines for visiting sites
Many of these megalithic sites are situated on private land or on farms. This does not mean that the farmers/landowners have no idea how much you want to see their stones, as local guides and pamphlets will have sent a steady stream of visitors to their doors down the years. But certain behaviour will add to your welcome and, perhaps more importantly, to that of those who come after you.

Here are some points to remember:
  • Always ask permission and park sensibly if you are in a car.
  • Leave gates as you find them (if you open them, shut them behind you) and avoid disturbing the animals.
  • Try to leave with more rubbish than you arrived with and don't dont exempt your own habits from this rule (butts, sweet papers, tea lights, foil, tea bags, you name it).
  • Don't presume that everyone loves your freeform didgeridoo and blaster.
  • Respect the sacredness of these temples and the land on which they stand.
