The Standing Stones of Stenness

Stone Circle

Folklore

William Wilson was told in the 1840s that the stones had been moved here by the mytes [sic]. He believed these to be spirits, and I think mytes is a reference to the bible's "Mighty that were of old" in the plural. wideford Posted by wideford
