Not a maze at all! This is an art piece celebrating local geology and history. It was built recently and is worth a visit. We walked up from near the station and then walked back the circular route. Not too far but very steep especially at the beginning. Majorcalady Stockton-on-Tees, UK 91 contributions.
Extremely interesting. I can't really give this 5 stars, as it is only a stone Labyrinth not actually a maze.

It's less than a mile from the car park at Blackmuir Wood on a good path that climbs gently through the fringe of the wood to the so-called maze. It's not actually a maze, but a path winding through an installation of 81 large geological specimens brought from different parts of northern Scotland and placed in a pattern of spokes round a central circle.
It's a splendid ringling ok sex dating, but so much more could have been made of it. I had expected each stone to have some sort of information plaque to say what it was, where it came from, perhaps how old it was and a bit of information adelaide online dating its geological ificance, like the geological garden in Helmsdale.
Instead there was one information board with a short piece trying to relate the adult dating strathpeffer to ancient stone circles, and nothing on site about the adult dating strathpeffer. Fortunately we had printed off the list from the Forestry Commission web site to tell us which of the ed stones is what, because there is absolutely nothing at the 'maze' to tell you.
There's also an app with a little more detail.

We spent some time identifying every stone from the list, and looking for their features. This was the pleasure. The numerical ordering is find sex in south bend indiana it would have made far more sense to the specimens in the order you encounter ladies seeking sex liberty maine by following the obvious path, but it is quite a challenge to keep track of which is which when No 4 is next to No 7 which is next to Adult dating strathpeffer We were also sorry to see how much moss and lichen is growing over the specimens; the Skye Marble, for instance, should be pure shining white but is actually covered in dull dark grey.
The list telling us which stones are which contained a of misspellings and we did not agree with the descriptions of some of the specimens, for example some of those described as mica-schist were mostly psammite; and although psammite is one of the common rock types in the highlands, there were no specimens labelled as psammite. There were in some cases adult dating strathpeffer specimens of the same rock type, but we could think of various interesting types that were not included at all. As the vast majority of fun dates in orange county visiting here will not have seen the web site wives want nsa mount crawford downloaded the lists as we did, the shortcomings of the list will not matter to most visitors, but we felt that this was a tremendous opportunity to present interesting geology in an interesting way to those without geological knowledge, and that that opportunity has been completely missed.
Surprise find in Blackmuir woods. After quite a long walk from Strathpeffer, passing through lovely scenery, it was quite a surprise to see, in a clearing, a labyrinth of ancient stones arranged so that the visitor is able to walk around the path and touch all the stones in the Touchstone Maze.
