A beautiful site to visit, such ancient history still able to see and feel. Lovely surrounding area as well and would be a fantastic walk to go on for a few hours. Certainly recommend checking out!

I don't live far from this historic site but had not been to it for many years.

Now that I am trying to fit in a decent walk each day I came to the Giant's Ring.

It has an informative sign board giving the history of the site which helps the visitor appreciate the importance of the site.

At first I thought it could be better maintained but probably better unspoilt.

There would be a strong case for banning dogs.

I love the scale of this Neolithic monument, the views of Belfast Hills in a westerly direction and patchwork of landscape in others. Today I smiled at the irony of spuds growing in nearby fields.
Again, irresponsible dog owners let the area down.

This important part of our heritage is spoiled by some visitors dropping litter, letting their dogs poo everywhere and others leaving far worse behind. The stones are so important but it is totally spoiled by the mess. It is also well known for other reasons.

I stayed at the nearby Crowne Plaza and had the afternoon to spare. This place was about 5 minutes drive from the A55. It is well signposted and has a large carpark (which is closed at night to discourage the dogging elements I guess!) .
The earthworks here are very impressive, with a small dolmen in the centre. A very nice way to break up the day.
