Kilmartin: Prehistoric landscapes

Kilmartin © David Gill

One of my favourite prehistoric landscapes has to be at Kilmartin, in Argyll, Scotland. Visitors can explore standing stone alignments, circles, cairns as well as cup-and-ring marks. The monuments are in the care of Historic Scotland and form part of a carefully managed landscape interpreted by the museum in Kilmartin village.

The remoteness of the glen contrasts with the popularity of some of the Wiltshire prehistoric landscapes around Avebury and Stonehenge.
