Calanais: Cnoc Fillibhir…

France & Vincent

*

Since the advent of the Visitor Centre at the site,

there has been an attempt to rename Cnoc Fillibhir Bheag,

which some might render the ‘little hill of the long-seers’,

as plain old Callanish III…

*

*

Which is a shame because the circle,

like most of these ancient monuments,

has its own very unique signature…

*

*

As the current sequence of photographic

‘slides’ endeavours to illustrate.

*

*

And as, perhaps, can here be seen,

there may be more to those

hoary old folk tales…

*

*

That tell of people being

turned to stone

for dancing on the Sabbath.

*

*

…Than initially meets the eye.

*

*

Not that it was a Sabbath,

you understand,

and nor was anybody dancing as such!

*

Just treading the path to Fairy-Land…
