The Standing Stones of Stenness

Stone Circle


We visited Orkney in July 1997, and made straight for Stennes and Brodgar when we arrived. I was immensely moved by Stennes, which must have once been the most significant megalithic site on Orkney, and still is the most beautiful. The vibes the place gave off were only comparable to Calanais on Lewis.

I proposed to Louise at Stennes, because it seemed like the right place to do it. Five years on I want to go back there and see the stones again. Perhaps we'll make it soon, with our son William and our, as yet, un-born child [Alfie].

I can't believe how few people have posted information to this part of the Web site. If you're considering a trip to Orkney, I can say with all honesty that, for me at least, Stennes justified the trip in itself.
