Stones of Stenness, Orkney: 7 reviews and 12 photos
How harsh may be history sometimes. A stupid ignorant beast of a farmer, in the early nineteenth century, bored by people that were coming to his land to visit the stones, destroyed the so called "Stone of Odin", possibly the altar.
Things like this make me remember how hard is to find something really ancient still standing and how lucky we are to find one.
The site now belongs to the UNESCO Heritage list, and this may save it.
The picture shows the size of these stones, about six meters in height.
