Callanish VIII at Bernera.⠀
⠀
The Callanish VIII stone setting is one of many megalithic structures around the better-known (and larger) Calanais I on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides. It is also known locally as Tursachan.⠀
⠀
This is a very unusual (and possibly unique) setting, with a semicircle of four large stones on the edge of a cliff on the south of the island of Great Bernera and looking across a narrow strait to Lewis. There is no evidence that the cliff has collapsed here and destroyed half of a complete circle - it would appear that a semicircle was the original intention. The tallest stone is nearly three metres high and the cliff-edge axis of the circle gives a diameter of about 20 metres.⠀

Easter in Easter Ross
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I have always wanted to visit the beguiling Fyrish Monument and have @dafyddpowell31 to thank for dragging me, @the.paris.girls and @srah._g up Fyrish hill at 4:30 this morning.
.
It was a taxing jaunt for so early in the morning but the views and stunning sunrise were well worth it. Can’t wait to do it all again - once my legs recover 😬
.
Built in 1782 by Sir Hector Munro, the design is modelled on the Gate of Negapatam, a port in Madras, India, which General Munro took for the British in 1781.
.
There are actually three Fyrish monuments in the area - maybe one day I’ll visit them all.

Ardverikie House is the site of an earlier shooting lodge leased in 1844 to the Marquess of Abercom. At this time there was a surge in interest for stalking in the Scottish highlands. Indeed, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert stayed at Ardverikie for 3 weeks in 1847.
▫️
The house was latterly leased to Lord Henry Bentinck in 1860 and then purchased by Sir John Ramsden (6th richest man in England) in 1871.
▫️
Following a fire in 1873, the house had to be rebuilt. This is the Ardverikie House we see today, made famous by the BBC series ‘Monarch of the Glen’. It has also recently featured as Balmoral Castle in the Netflix series, 'The Crown'.
