Calanais III
Callanish, Western Isles
Stone Circle Canmore
Also known as Cnoc Fillibhir Bheag; Callanish III

Just another couple of hundred yards from Calanais II is the complex Calanais III. This has been interpreted as an outer ring with an inner ring, quadrangle or cove; a complex double ellipse; and as two concentric circles with an inner cove.
