Today’s tour was concentrated in the Standing Stones of Calanais. These stones were hauled to the site over 4,000 years ago using rollers, wooden frames and just brute strength! Of course Stonehenge comes to mind when we see these ‘monuments’. Another structure called Brochs were symbols and homes for the chiefs of a settlement. The Broch at Dun Carloway was on our tour of the area,
The final stop was to a ‘typical’ village where the inhabitants were engaged in typical tasks like weaving Harris Tweed cloth. A peat fire was burning.
We returned to the ship and had a bar-b-q that was served not on deck (due to the chill) but in the galley!
