Stand on a once- sacred hilltop where people first held ritualsand raised monuments some 5,500 years ago. You can visit a Neolithic henge, see the site of a great timber circle and descend into a Bronze Age cist grave (now covered by a modern, domed chamber).

The panoramic views stretch from Bass Rock in the east to the Isle of Arran in the west.
