How To Get There

Take the A87(T) north out of Portree and follow it for around 7 miles. Once you pass the fork with the A850 you are about half way there. As you enter the village of Kensaleyre you'll cross a bridge and you'll soon see the bay of Loch Eyre to your left. Continue through the village. The stones are not far from the road on the left side. You might have to park in the village and walk up to the stones. Be careful, this can be a very busy stretch of road.

These two impressive megaliths stand overlooking the water where the wonderfully named "Loch Snizort Beag" meets Loch Eyre. Not far away to the south is the impressive looking Carn Liath which we have yet to explore (it was a wet day, a very wet day!).
