    I think your picture is of the Callanish stones on the Isle of Lewis on the Hebrides.
    Keep these pics coming as your website is very interesting and it is a good test of our knowledge of geography to try to identify these places of interest. I am surprised that more readers could not identify these very famous stones.

      Well done for getting the correct answer. This picture, as you say, is of the Callanish Stones in the Outer Hebrides and not far from Stornaway. There are several similar sets of stones in the area that have been there thousands of years. No one knows why they were built and they are fascinating to see.

      Thanks for taking the time to send your answer. As you say it is a shame that more readers couldn’t identify where the stones are but maybe the geography quiz was a little too difficult !
