It's not a maze! But it's a lovely walk up quite a steep hill (we did have the worst weather with driving rain and wind which didn't help). The information board is very interesting. It was also very easy to find so I couldn't understand...More

Neat little place to visit that we were not expecting. Each stone is from a different region of Scotland and from a different geological time. Interesting and great hike. Easy too!

We took in the maze as part of a walk up to the top of Knockfarrel. An interesting insight into the different stones from different areas of the highlands.

My trip was with 4 kids under 7. The walk from the village up to the touchstone maze was very steep for the kids. Once the kids were there they had fun in the touchstone maze for about 20 mins. Stones are from all areas...More

Been there, it's nothing special apart the view, but lots of trees were cut, I don't know why. It's good to move out of the village and make some cardio and enjoy outdoors.

The walk to get there is good, but the "maze" itself is a bit of a let down to be honest. It tries to educate you about the history of Scotland through the various types of rocks that the country is made of.
