Standing Stones on Machrie Moor
Standing Stones on Machrie Moor
The Isle of Arran, off the West Coast of Scotland, has many stone circles and standing stones dating from the Neolithic period and the early Bronze Age. The finest collection of circles can be found on Machrie Moor, on the West of the island. The whole moorland is littered with the remains of early man, from hut circles to chambered cairns and solitary standing stones. The most distinguishable of the circles consists of three upright red sandstone pillars, the tallest of which is just over 18 feet high.
