Stand Tall

Stand Tall, originally uploaded by

On the Isle of Lewis when you are hunting for some standing stones the obvious place to visit is the more well known site at Calanais (Calanish) which always seems to draw a crowd come hail or shine, but if you drive up the North-West of the island towards Port Nis (Port Ness) you will find another set of standing stones known as Steinacleit.

They may not have the same impact to the eye that the Standing Stones of Calanish have, but when you take some time to look at just how large the stone circles are at Steincleit you get the impression that this is infact was the larger set of standing stones / stone circles on the island, but over the years has been pumelled by the weather and many of the stones have gave in along the way.
