[Kinnell Stone Circle]

Six lichen-dusted boulders make up this lesser-known stone circle close to the River Dochart, a short walk from the centre of Killin. Kinnell Stone Circle dates from 2,000 or 3,000 BC and is therefore remarkably well-preserved - though some sources suggest it has been restored at some point. The monument now finds itself in the middle of a field, so beware livestock.

📌 Kinnell Stone Circle
Off Gray Street, 15-min walk east of Killin village centre, G.R.: NN 577328 ///intrigues.booms.stuff
Always open | Free

Anything else? From the nearest car park (gets full) on Main Street (A827) at G.R.: NN 572326 ///thinks.hence.kebab it's a 15-min walk to the stone circle. Follow the main road south across the River Dochart, then take the first road on the left, which soon becomes a track. Keep right at a fork; the stone circle is on the right in a field just before Kinnell Farm.
