Kilmartin ….such a special place

It is not just because my family was here. This is an incredible archeologic site going back 2000 BC. The Kilmartin Glen has attracted archeologists from around the world. There are standing stones similar to Stonehenge and carvings in the rock that look like a spiral and cup.

Today I walked through the Glen with a guide. For two and one half miles..we saw cairns, standings stones and stone circles. One of the oldest circle is said to date back to the druids. According to the guide some believers are said to gather at midnight on a specific dates and dance around the circle nude. He said he has never been awake to verify.

The Kilmartin museum is amazing and full of ancient and medieval history. On our walk we stopped at a few burial cairns and standing stones. It was a beautiful day for a walk through the glen with a running narrative to keep up the interest.
