Machrie Moor 1
Blackwaterfoot, Isle of Arran OS Map
Stone Circle Canmore

Machrie Moor, on the west side of Arran, is soaked through with archaeology going back 5,500 years.

A very obvious feature of the moor is the group of six stone circles set very close together.

Circle 1 is a ring of six granite boulders and five sandstone slabs set alternately. (If there was a sixth sandstone slab, it is long gone.)
