Achmore image

A ruined stone circle, near Achmore (Acha Mor) village in central Lewis (Western Isles). In the depth of peat 18 stones were found in 1981. Only two stand erect, the other ones lying flat on the ground.
In the photo, two of the lying slabs with their packing stones and one of the erect ones (in the background) are visible. The stones are along the circumference of a true circle, 41m in diameter.
