Standing Stones

Callanish (Standing Stones) by Kammer Taken 1st August 2004: An unusual view of stone number 19 as seen from the east, with two large lumps of green-horn (a naturally occurring feature of Lewisian gneiss) sticking out of it.

This is the stone that lost it's tip in the late 19th Century only to have it reinstated in 1978 after Margaret Curtis (formerly Margaret Ponting) found it in a nearby wall.
