Callanish Standing Stones, Callanish Reviews
Lovely piece of Scotland's history. Amazing views but can get quite busy. Fabulous walk around the entire site if you are able to walk that far in rugged terrain
Wonderful hilltop position and impressive arrangement of stones in a cross formation... accessible even outside of Visitor Centre hours. Nice Visitor building and good car park too...
Cycled to the stones on a Sunday from Stornoway and back. Roughly 34 mile trip. Can be difficult to locate and would recommend using google maps. Drive or cycle through a small housing estate/road before reaching the stones. The visitor centre here is also closed on a Sunday also. The stone site is spectacular and doesnt disappoint. It is well maintained and well preserved. No trip to Lewis would be complete without a visiy here. There are also walks and trails around the area.
Really amazing! The actual stones were great, not much information though and you had to pay to go into the "museum" which looked very small.
Unfortunately there was a coachload of tourist when we visited. Viewing the stones and getting a good photo was almost impossible. However the history surrounding the stones is fascinating.
