Lochbuie Stone Circle, Isle of Mull
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Fantastically scenic location on the south coast of Mull
Take the Lochbuie road off the A849 southwest of Craignure. There are more direct routes, but the easiest way to reach the stone circle is to park at the beach, and follow the path along the shore, behind Lochbuie House until the circle comes into view in a field. When I visited in the early morning there were cows in the field, but there were happily grazing and paid no attention to me at all.
About 400 metres away, on the shore, stands 15th century Moy Castle, stronghold of the Maclaines.
