The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides by James Boswell

Monday, 30th August 1773: Inverness, Fort Augustus.

About three miles beyond Inverness, we saw, just by the road, a very complete specimen of what is called a Druid's temple. There was a double circle, one of very large, the other of smaller stones. Dr Johnson justly observed, that, 'to go and see one druidical temple is only to see that it is nothing, for there is neither art nor power in it; and seeing one is quite enough'.

Thanks to Nigel Swift for this one -
