Machrie Moor features 6 stone circles dating back to approximately 2000 BC, set in the middle of peat bogs. There are very few visitors, you can tune in to the stones surrounded by silence, a wonderful landscape, and of course sheep. For more information about this special place CLICK HERE.

I became fascinated with pre-historic Celtic sites in 2002 when I had the opportunity to visit STONEHENGE (my photo here) and AVEBURY (story and photos here).

    They look so stoic! The undulating hills in the background and the variations in the lighting enhance the mysticism.
