Plan a Great Day Out

Shops, toilets and a pub can be found in nearby St Buryan. The Merry Maidens (not within the care of English Heritage) is a late Neolithic stone circle located 100 metres from the parking area.

A short drive away is the ancient Iron Age village of Carn Euny, where you can see the foundations of stone houses dating from the 2nd to the 4th centuries AD. A few miles further north-west is Ballowall Barrow, a Bronze Age tomb in a spectacular cliff-edge position.
