Stanydale Temple

Stone Circle


The site is reasonably well signed from some way off, but the only parking is what looks like a passing place. We went past this thinking that there would be a bigger spot, and its a long way before you can turn round!

Its about 10-15 minute walk to the site from the parking area. Route is well marked with posts and signed. Interpretation boards en route at other landscape features.

Terrain is quite boggy moorland and there could be a midge issue at times.

The site itself is best described as enigmatic. Not clear what it was, and why very unusually for Shetland the sea is not visible.

Many other prehistoric remains in the vicinity.
