Callanish Stones, Isle of Lewis, Scotland

These standing stones are magical. They look like a group of old men contemplating the nature of the universe. The miracle is that they have stood on the Isle of Lewis for thousands of years largely undamaged. Please don't go there, not because it is not worth seeing, it is very special, but because it might turn into the circus that is Stonehenge. Let the souls of ancient peoples who inhabit these places rest in peace and no Wallace Arnold coaches, please !

It's believed that the Stones where first put up from 2900 to 2600 BC, that makes them nearly 5000 years old.

One theory is that the stones are aligned to the setting of the moon in Mid summer but no one really seems to know.

"First published in 1993, it is a gem of a book that is as detailed as it is readable. If you have ever looked at a row of megaliths and wondered, buy this book now."

 

From a brief search of the internet its true purpose cannot de defined beyond the usual ideas of a calendar of the moon and stars or the worship of Gods.

We say, let it's mystery remain in the mists of time
and just soak in the spirits of the past.
