Standing in a field overlooking Etterick Bay A picturesque drive from Port Bannantyne brings you to the stones. However you could miss them as not really well signposted. Interesting enough but more could be done around them to encourage visitors.

All Standing Stones are full of mystery - who put them there, and why? There is a definite feeling of peace, yet also some spookiness. If you are interested in Ancient History, this is the place for you.

It is worth checking the location of the car park (right opposite the end of the runway) before travel as is a difficult entrance to see, obviously if walking this isnt so much of an issue. There is information posted about the stones which is interesting.

Overshot the entrance to stones due to broken sign. Once parked and out of car, we quickly found the stones. Quite weather beaten but sheltered by the trees, they make a short but interesting visit. The information board gave a historic background to their use. There were other stones nearby, which we would like to visit in the future.

The weather broke long enough for a wander around the Standing Stones of Kingarth. A short walk from the road but far enough for the mystery to envelop you, particularly on a wet and misty afternoon. Also handy for the airport!!

We walked to the stones on a very hot day, but they are coolly sited in a quiet grove of trees. Well worth the visit if you are into your standing stones like we are!

Three average-sized neolithic stones in a nice forestry setting. Useful information in an open area stand. been there made me feel and think how this sort of stones were place there and how much we don't know about past life and events on earth. And forget to make a wish when you place a coin in on of the Stones... More

A set of three standing stones, a short distance off a side road near the airstrip on the south end of the Isle of Bute. One of the three stones is propped up by an iron rod, but this doesn't take away from the history of this small site. Glad we found these stones (keep a sharp eye out for... More

The Tripadvisor map takes you to a coffee shop in the centre of town, hence best ignored if you want to find this stone circle. Better to search for it online (before you leave town and the Internet coverage) and go for map coordinates. Once you find it there is a car park. There are three stones on the edge... More
