Standing Stones

Phone number:


Though little is known about these pagan times in Carrick, their standing stones remain in places such as:

Lyonstone Farm – This Grey Granite stone was likely to have been placed to commemorate a long forgotten important event. It can be found near Maybole in a field on Lyonstone Farm on the south side of the low road to Ayr.

Garleffin, just south of Ballantrae these can be reached via the Glenapp Kirk to Ballantrae section of the Ayrshire Coastal Path
