Since the trees were cleared in the vicinity of the maze-stone, the light does show their different characters in various colours etc. The walk it's self is very pleasant and we walked all along the cat's back to Knockfarrell the dog enjoyed it too.

We were staying locally in a cottage, and had just decided to go for a walk with the dog through the woods, and came across this little gem in the middle of the woods. It's not massive....... Doesn't take ages to walk round or anything, but definitely a nice surprise whilst we were out.

Fascinating place and lots of history. Its a lovely little walk from the town and is easy to get too. Not too taxing. All the stones are from different areas of Scotland and all from different Geological eras.

A nice walk through the woods along good paths, it was well signposted and something different to see in the middle of the trees, kids would love it.

Really thought there would be more to this but there really isn't. Spent 2 mins here and saw it all. There isn't really much difference between the rocks either so not very interesting at all.
