Ophelia storm was about the hit the coast of Arran when we started the walk. 60 mph wind, but dry! The big stones are quite unique and you cannot really imagine about how they were able to put these upright... Good easy walk with nice...More

After parking the car it was a leisurely walk although bit muddy through fields and onto the moor. Weather drizzly but hey its Scotland and well worth the visit. Interesting plaques explaining the history of the stones. Enjoyable walk. Suitable for all ages.

Nice walk to the stones, damp path but worth it, fascinating to see the way the stones have been laid and the history behind them.

The circles can only be reached on foot from the small carpark. The nearest is about a kilometer away on a level track and the more distant another 1.5km or so further on. Highly recommended for situation and atmosphere

A visit to the Machrie Moor standing stones is a must for all visiting the Isle of Arran. The hike from the well-sign-posted car park will take you approximately an hour and the trail, which is largely flat, will take you through quite boggy ground;...More

Well worth a visit approx return time to car park 1 hour. Currently decent walking boots (or wellies) required as very boggy in places. A few explanatory boards give plenty of information. Recommended.
