Machrie Moor Standing Stones

The Machrie Moor stone circles are a collection of 6 stone circles that date back to the neolithic and bronze age in the island of Arran in Scotland. A short walk (1 mile) through a footpath through a working farm gets you to the moor where these stone circles can be found. The photos below are of Machrie Moor stone circle 1, which is formed of 6 granite boulders and alternating 4 sandstone slabs.

The scenery around the moor is breathtaking and it was one of the high points of my visit to Arran.
