The Isle of Arran, off the West Coast of Scotland, has many stone circles and standing stones dating from the Neolithic period and the early Bronze Age. On Machrie moor is a complex of stone circles, standing stones, cairns and hut circles which makes it one of the most interesting and remarkable archaeological sites in Scotland.  As with many stone circles they may have served some form of astronomical function, related to the major festivals in the ancient calendar.
