Erected on the Isle of Lewis around 3,500 B.C. (before the pyramids of Egypt) these incredible stones still stand today. The stones form a circle in the middle that has served as a cairn, but also has rows of standing stones that branch out in the four compass direction, with a double row of stones to the south. Truly an awesome experience just to be there and wonder, as all who have come before, what was the purpose of this formation. A calendar? An astronomical clock? A site for ancient aliens?
It isn't easy to get there, but a visit is well worth the effort!
