Artist's Description

Callanai I taken at early evening. The magnificent stone circle is situated in the small town of Callanish on the Isle of Lewis, one of the Hebridean Island off the coast of Scotland. Calanais is the location of the Callanish Stones, a cross-shaped setting of standing stones erected around 2000 BC, one of the most spectacular megalithic monuments in Scotland.
The Stones were quarried and erected at the site between 2900 – 2600 BC during what is known as the Neolithic period. There is some evidence to suggest earlier structures at the site. A short period of time after the construction of the circle, a chambered cairn was built between the central standing stone and the circle. This was ransacked around 1950BC give and take a few hundred years, at a time when the site fell out of ritual use. (
