Overview

Stand among the ancient ceremonial stones at this windswept location. 

There are three tall standing stones at Drumtroddan, dating to the second or third millennium BC. Two have fallen, but the other one stands about 3m high. It’s likely this was a ceremonial site, where observations of the Sun or Moon were made. 

The stones provide a stark and evocative reminder of a mysterious past. They’re part of a unique prehistoric landscape, which includes the nearby Drumtroddan Cup and Ring Marked Rocks.
