A look at – Northern Scotland

Hill o Many Stanes WPP1030426

Following recent fieldwork in Northern Scotland the gazetteer entries for most of the 30 stone alignments in the region have been updated to incorporate the results. The stone alignments in this area are mainly very different in character to those found elsewhere in Great Britain and in particular most are of the multiple row type. Most are composed of small and medium sized stones and whilst many of the rows include more than 50 stones, deep peat and dense vegetation makes them difficult to see and appreciate. Despite this, some remarkable visual links and reveals were discovered confirming that despite appearances, these rows also seem to have been erected by people interested in interacting in specific ways with their surroundings.

The page for Northern Scotland has been updated to include the fresh findings and from here access to the individual gazetteer entries is possible either via the Google Map or listing at the foot of the page.
