Pobuill Fhinn

Stone Circle


The site's name probably means 'Finn's People' - Finn MacCool that is -though it's also been translated as the Holy People.
The circle is built on an artificially levelled surface (quite a feat) and has 22 standing stones, the largest about 7ft tall. There are two broad 'entrances'.

Aubrey Burl gives it a romantic description in his 'from carnac to callanish' book:

"..Strangely beautiful.. overlooking a loch and distances of grassy machair with water lilies, marsh marigolds and orchids, overflown by lapwings, thinly whistling dunlins and shrieking oystercatchers.."
