The mysterious standing stones and stone circles of the British Isles are the remains of a culture that existed some 4,000 years ago. The photographs on this page show a selection of the many hundreds that exist, often in remote and desolate places, throughout the country. Archaeologists associate the sites with the Neolithic (late Stone Age) and early Bronze Age periods, but the question of their purpose remains largely unresolved.
Ceannan-tailen (pronounced Kintallen) is small bay on the West Coast of Scotland near to the mouth of West Loch Tarbert. The bay is exposed to the Sound of Jura and the prevailing westerly winds. The sand in the bay is continually shifting such that each year when I returned it always seemed different. I liked to spend much time on this shore observing the tidal world and the photographic pieces here are a result of ideas developed on this beach.
Mostly mason’s marks, but some mass clocks and other unidentified markings.
