The Clava stones are the ones near Culloden. The country is full of incredible standing stones and stone rings in the Highlands and the North east of Scotland such Tomnaverie Stone Circle, Tarland, Aberdeenshire. Kilmartin Glen, Argyll. , Lochbuie Stone Circle, Isle of Mull. Macleod’s Stone, Isle of Harris. Kinnell Stone Circle and many many more. Ancient first known as Brochs and the mysterious Pictish Symbol stones as well as Chambered cairns across Scotland particularly in Caithness and in the South at the spectacularly located Cairnholy chambered cairn with its impressive dolmen snd stones . Scotland is an extremely ancient country with a wealth of historical monuments that stretch back into the mists if time from Castles standing stones to burials snd caves as well as a wealth of interpretation.

I visited the Kilmartin Glen, which has some fabulous standing stones as well as rock art, cairns, cysts, all aligned along a long valley.

I think the setting is a little more spectacular than the stones, but Glengorm Castle on Mull, a wonderful B&B accommodation, has its own 4,000 year old

stone circle. The grounds are on the north coast where wonderful sunsets can be seen, silhouetting the islands of Rum and Laig to the north.
