Auchagallon is a Bronze Age burial cairn surrounded by a circle of 15 standing stones. Auchagallon is an odd sort of monument, a cross between a stone circle and a burial cairn. The site has not been excavated so we know little about how or when it was built or whether the standing stones were added at a later date to an existing cairn. The location is fabulous, however, with wonderful views across to Kintyre. A few miles to the south are the standing stones and burial mounds at Machrie Moor. Machrie, Isle of Arran, Arran, Strathclyde, Scotland
The Auchencar Druid Stone is a striking prehistoric standing stone in a prominent position looking out over Machrie Bay, on the west coast of Arran.
