One of the best places to see evidence of prehistoric activity on Mull is the small stone circle at Lochbuie. It is the only one on Mull and stands in the grounds of Lochbuie House.

The circle of standing stones dating from the Bronze Age and was originally nine granite stones, about 12 metres in diameter, with the tallest stone being about 2 metres high. It is mainly composed of granite slabs which have been positioned with their flatter faces towards the inside of the circle. One of the original stones has been removed and replaced in recent times with a low boulder.

Visiting Lochbuie Standing Stones

Take the Lochbuie road off the A849 southwest of Craignure. 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.
