...this is a stone age structure with walls up to 10 feet thick, double skinned dry stane dykes with rubble fill between them, they stood 27 foot high. This is the largest remaining in the Western Isles.
Good morning Dougie,
I wonder. For 20 minutes this wonderful image has been in the gallery and no votes. Ok, I love to be the first!
Superb light and sky once again. The view to the sea and the small isle at the back make a good frame for the fg cairn and the broch. The texture in the fg rocks is superb and the wee bit of green heather looks very smooth. Altogether a great image. Great as a start into the day.
Take care my friend,
Lovely shot great details
Like the composition and the sky.
A good capture
I like the composition in the Dougie, great colours.
Fine shot Doug.
Very beautiful scene
a bonnie composition Dougie well captured features of the foreground and all the way through the shot enhanced by that ' lucky ' sky.
I can not improve on Johanna's appreciation of this, nor on Kin's, so I shan't try. Terrific image!
Look at the weather you got you were so lucky, however its been good up there for a while now, when we go it rains
Did you stay on the west side of the island? I hope you got lots more shots to show us of this great place.
The history and grandure become clear when viewing large
Hope you had a grand hogmany and are back to normal now.
I don't think I've been normal for many a long year Dave.
A beautiful capture rich in history and colour. I can only imagine what it must be like in person.
Like the way the light has picked out the far mound Dougie, looks like you found some of those blue skies during your visit.
Two weeks roming the Uists in the spring for me, just sent the deposit off this morning, 12hr drive + 1hr ferry
Fine shot, best appreciated viewed LARGE.
they didn't mess around in the stone age
happy new year bud - hope the hogmany celebrations didn't make yesterday too unbearable !
glad to 30th dougie looks superb well captured,,
Glad to see you did get some good weather while you were out on Lewis. We were watching the forecast and thinking of you both.
This place brings back some happy memories as we were staying in a cottage just down the road from this broch when we decided to move to the Highlands in 2001. Definitely a good decision!
All the best
A good bit of history as well as a good image.Two for the price of one Dougie.......Very unlike a scotsman.
Its all been said,so just a click.
Lovely shot with the sea in the background. Good rich earthy tones.
Superb detail and the tones and colours are magic...
