Na Clachan Bhreigh
Elgol, Isle of Skye OS Map
Stone Circle Canmore

Na Clachan Bhreige, near Kirkibost on the road down to Elgol, is the only definite stone ring (as far as I am aware) on Skye. It is maybe a 3/4 mile walk from the road. If, like me, you tend to take your holidays out of season when the weather is perhaps a little on the damp side, you may find the route to this site to be made up largely of sucking peat bog; the wee burn may also turn out to be more of an obstacle that in high summer. When you get to the circle, you may well think: "Why on earth did I bother?"

This is normal. This is sane. But there are some great views in the area!
