The Standing Stones of Stenness

Circle henge


This didn't immediately 'wow' me like I thought it would. It wasn't that I was disappointed exactly but I didn't get that 'buzz'. It was only when I got up very close to the individual stones, particularly the really wafer thin one, that this place excited me. The angle of the top of each stone was thrilling and had a really angry graphic quality.

I was surprised by the little henge it was in, which seemed too small for the height and sharpness of the stones. My God! When all the stones were up it must've been quite an intimidating sight!
