What are standing stones?
When the first settlers arrived in Scotland over 10,000 years ago, they began to erect incredible monuments, some of which can still be seen today.
What do they mean?
The purpose of these stones is a puzzle that modern day archaeologists can only speculate over; these ancient sites may forever remain shrouded in mystery. Many sites are believed to have been used for religious or ceremonial purposes. Let your imagination take you back thousands of years in time.
Where can I find them?
There are many ancient sites in Scotland, each with a tale to tell. Orkney and Shetland have a particularly prevalent number of standing stones but you can also find them in Dumfries & Galloway and Argyll.
