Bernera Bridge Circle

Stone Circle


Visited 30.5.12

On the way back from visiting the reconstructed round house at Traigh Bostadh we stopped at the small parking area at the northern end of the Bernera Bridge.

This is a very easy site to access and only requires a very short but quite steep walk.

The site consists of 3 impressive standing stones – 1 x 2 metres tall and 2 x 3 metres tall.
There is of course also the ‘birthing chair’ although I doubt that is what it was as there didn’t appear to be any room for the baby to pop out!

The stones wouldn't have looked out of place at Callanish with there patterned swirls and 'hairy' lichen.

There are great views along the coast from the stones and this is well worth stopping for.
