Calanais VIII
Callanish, Western Isles
Standing Stones Canmore
Also known as Cleitir; Callanish VIII

Where the road bridge joins Great Bernera to Lewis there is a very odd site. A semicircular setting of four stones on a cliff edge.

As with so many of the stone circles on Lewis and the surrounding islands, the rock textures are fabulous. The views can be amazing. And you can experience all the weather you need! A unique site, and very much worth the visit.
