Calanais: Achmore…

*

For those souls with a feel for the living land,

it would be wise to ‘turn away’ at this point.

*

The ‘dark back-drop form’ in the landscape depiction above

is the line of hills known as the Cailleach-na-Mointeach.

*

The ‘Old Woman of the Moor’ also features as the

‘Moon-scape’ which the stones of Callanish still

track with pin-point accuracy to this day.

*

The fore-ground uprights in the same depiction

show Achmore Stone Circle as it was originally constructed.

*

Unfortunately, only one of the uprights

from the circle is still standing.

*

As an indication of the former glory of this site,

a now recumbant upright ‘glows’.

  1. This is incredible. The knowledge of the people who created this has to have been so sophisticated to create a way to track the light from the moon with such amazing accuracy. And the recumbent stone – does it glow like this all the time? It is absolutely beautiful! Oh, to be where I could see everything first-hand. It would be easier to read without errors so often on my part. I am just glad to be able to be a part of this truly magical experience. I thank each and every one of you for that.
