The Callanish, in the Gaelic, Calanais, were first mentioned by Diodorus Siculus in 55 BC and are believed to be approximately 5000 year old stones and are of Lewisian gneiss. Less a ring of large stones than a cruxiform shape the Callanish measures about 12 metres in diameter enclosing a huge monolith at its centre. The stones are believed to be aligned with the sun and the moon in order to predict eclipses and the coming seasons.
