  • There is a clear track to the stone circles. The parking is limited as it is only a small layby in the road. The circle is well preserved although some stones have fallen down. The start of the track....  more

  • 1 km up track to get there from roadside but lovely setting and near complete stone circle.
  • It's a long walk up a often times steep driveway that has no public vehicle access (so you have to walk) but it's well worth the visit. The surroundings are beautiful and the stone circle is pretty amazingly in tact. Really loved the visit. And the walk back down gives you some beautiful views toward the ocean too! Enjoy.
