Stone Circle


Visited 31.5.12

The remaining standing stone is approximately 1.5 metre tall x 0.5 metre across.

The views from the stone are the best I have seen on Lewis – breathtaking.
They show Lewis at its best – both rugged and beautiful.
The sun darted in and out of clouds and lit up parts of the mountains in the distance.

I was in the right place at the right time for the light to reveal ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in all her glory. She was so clear and recognisable – the best I had seen her during my stay - watching over all that she surveyed.

The view set out in front of me had to be one of the highlights of my short but fulfilling stay on Lewis. Simply stunning.
