Standing Stones of Callanish

Older than the Brochs are the stone circles in the north of Scotland. Approximately 3000 years before Christ this stone circle was constructed. The purpose is unknown. The real prehistoric Eldorado starts not here on the Outer Hebrides, but on the Orkney Islands. Several stone circles, innumerable hill graves and a stone age settlement place even the famous 'Stonehenge' in South England in the shade.
