Geocache Description:

KILMORE STANDING STONES

In touch with ancient Mull


The Kilmore, or Cnoc Fada, Standing Stones are found in what used to be a clearing in trees at the southern end of Cnoc Fada, just 230 metres north-west of the road from Dervaig to Tobermory. There is a small car park at the top of the hill, from which a path leads to a gate giving into the plantation.

WARNING: Enter the plantation via the gate, not through the gap in the fence nearby as, at the time of writing, there is a hazardous strand of wire low down, which is a major trip hazard!

The whole area has now been clear-felled, resulting in the loss of the original cache placed here. The present cache is a direct replacement, since this is too impressive a place not to visit. The state of dereliction that prevails at the moment, while improve as Nature takes its course.

There are 5 standing stones in all, but only 2 remain standing. The upright stones are both approximately 2.5 metres in height. Even without the cover of trees, that filtered green light onto the stones, this remains a truly magical place.

The cache is located not far from the stones. There is no need to scramble about among the debris.
