Pre-dating Stonehenge by 2,000 years, and much more mysterious, this is the largest of the Callanish standing stone circles, standing sentinel above the pristine water of Loch Roag on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis.
.
Although there are often tourists here, I’ve also sat alone with the stones on several occasions; watching the sun go down, feeling totally at peace amongst this human-made wonder. Callanish is without doubt one of my favourite places, from all those I’ve visited, to simply sit and be. It’s beautiful in appearance, but it’s true beauty, to me, is in the long-lost reason for the monumental effort that went into creating it.
.
5000 years ago, the crofters who lived in this remote part of Scotland started to erect standing stones here, quarrying and somehow moving the 3 billion year-old Gneiss slabs into their current upright positions. While the climate may have been warmer, Neolithic life would have been incredibly tough, so to dedicate some of it to move stones (the biggest of which is almost 16 feet tall and weighs 7 tonnes) for any type of project shows how important this site was to the community.
.
To this day, no one really knows Callanish’s purpose. There are theories, the prevailing of which is that the site was a lunar observatory. Thousands of years before the Celts or Christians, these stones were laid out in a cross shape, though. There’s an 83m avenue of 19 stones, leading to the centre circle, which would seem like a ceremonial entrance. Theres a school of thought that Callanish is linked to Orkney’s Stones of Stenness, another of the earliest stone circles in Britain, and that both sites were situated where the horizon could be maximised, to show the most extreme rising and setting points of the sun and moon. Of course there’s also a case to be made that these were houses for the dead. Callanish, as with many stone circles, features a chambered tomb. Perhaps its builders were simply trying to connect nature with their beloved dead.
.
If you ever get a chance to visit, go. Wait for it to get quiet and sit; appreciate the effort our forebears went to. Its significance weighs heavy on my romantic, patriotic heart..
