On a flat hill near Raphoe in County Donegal, stands the large stone circle of Beltany.
Sixty-four out of an estimated 80 stones still stand, though the circle was poorly excavated a hundred years ago, and is a bit askew and rumpled from the ill treatment.
It was dated to approximately 1400-800BC, though artifacts from later periods may show that the site was used for many centuries.
It is a bright and breezy place, with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. I have a large number of photographs of this place and each one looks as if it were from a different site entirely. Lighting is highly changeable around the circle, especially in the twilight as the setting or rising sun hits the stones at an angle. A remarkable location.
