Calanais Standing Stones I. Stornoway, United Kingdom
Note

For more than 5,000 years the stones at the heart of the Calanais I site have stood as a testament to their original builders. The central monolith stands 4.8 meters high and it is believed that the site functioned as a local astronomical observatory. The site is also commonly referenced as "Callanish". Little known fact: The Calanais Visitor Center has a wonderful cafe that offers quality food at reasonable prices.
