Photoblog: 24 Jul 2012

The Isle of Arran is a fantastic little place to go to point a camera at landscapes: a quick train ride and boat ride out of Glasgow and you have ‚ÄúScotland in miniature‚ÄĚ, a compact and reasonably diverse set of mountains, rolling hills, beaches, lighthouses, harbours, castles and, at Machrie Moor, a whole bunch of stone circles, all comfortably within a day‚Äôs circumnavigation by bicycle or bus.

Wikipedia says: Machrie Moor is the site of a number of neolithic structures dating back up to 4500 years ago. The Standing Stones were dated back to approximately 2500 years ago but excavations in the 1980s uncovered elaborate timber structures and stone circles which dated back even further in history.
