Callanish, East on the Isles of Lewis forms part of an impressive complex
Distribution of long single rows composed of less than 10 large sized stones.
Type S8 stone rows have the most comprehensive distribution. They are found in most regions and there is no obvious clustering found with other types of stone row. The widespread adoption of this form of row means that it is different to other types which have a more localised clustered distribution. Some of these rows may have originally included more than 9 stones but most probably only ever included a relatively small number. The small number of stones inevitably means that the distance between individual stones is generally greater than in most types of stone row. This is particularly the case with the longer examples.
