Winter sunrise, Callanish, Isle of Lewis

One of the most spectacular megalithic sites in Scotland. The overall design of the monument is similar to the Celtic cross and the cruciform chambers of many Neolithic passage mounds.
The Callanish-I stone-circle was built so that the moon, at its major standstill appears to rise and set from behind the hills of Harris which are as much a part of the monument as the stones themselves.
Callanish has been associated with both lunar and solar astronomy
