  1. Like your site, and I thought that you might be interested in some of the results of a survey I did there way back in 1992. From the centre of the large cairn, the tallest standing stone marked the midsummer sunset, while the northern major standstill moon at midwinter will set between the two stones. The sun will set in line around the 8th November and February. The two standing stones are aligned SW towards the southern setting moon at midsummer. There are other sight lines that might have been important in other directions. The moon won’t set in these directions until 2025. I just thought you might be interested in trying to photograph any of the solar ones, as I live in the north of Scotland. Thanks.


    • Hi Douglas and thank you for the nice comment and especially for those alignments. I must make sure to be up there in 2025. Perhaps they’ll carry me up in a bath chair. But really – must try to make the solstice.
