[Kinnell Stone Circle]

6 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.

💬 From the car park 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.

  1. My daughter and I did the walk to the stone circle while visiting Scotland back in 2017. We were there when the trees through the forest had lovely autumn colours so it took us a bit longer that the 15 minutes you describe above - stopping for photos can add a lot to time. We loved the stone circle which was bathed in sunlight on the day and was perfect for photography. I now have the name of the circle - thanks.

    1. Glad you had a good day for it Del, and you're certainly right that stopping for photos adds time! Thanks for commenting.
