The Callanish Stones

The Standing Stones of Callanish are one of the most important prehistoric sites in the UK, with the 5,000 year old central circle and avenues of impressive upstanding gneiss being the most iconic image of the Isle of Lewis. This walk combines the main site with two further stone circles nearby.


Path around stones, tarmac road, very boggy approaches to the two smaller stone circles.
