Ring of Brodgar

The Ring of Brodgar is a World Heritage Site located in the heart of Orkney.

The Ring of Brodgar was erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC and is thought to be the last of the great Neolithic monuments built in this area.

It is hard to describe this site with words.  But, imagine a large ring of very large stones (varying in height from 7 feet to over 15 feet) built in a true circle, almost 104 meters wide.  Although it is thought to have originally contained 60 stones, today only 27 stones remain.

Walking among the stones feels truly sacred and magical.  You can't help but wonder -- Why are the stones here? What is its purpose? How did the people who built this site get these stones here?
