Without a bit of knowledge, it's hard to grasp the significance of ancient stones. The small Kilmartin House Museum helps fill that gap. The 15-minute audiovisual is excellent as are the exhibits. The hands-on activities are a hit with children. The food at the neighboring Glebe Cairn Café is first-rate.
