Saints and Stones: Callanish III (Cnoc Filibhir Bheag)

The Callanish III Stone Circle, known in Gaelic as Cnoc Filibhir Bheag, is one of many megalithic structures close to the main Callanish Stones on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis.

This is a complex setting of 17 stones variously described as "a double ellipse and as two concentric circles with an inner cove."
