Another view of the north-east stone circle at Temple Wood in Kilmartin Glen, also taken on Boxing Day. This view shows some of the concrete markers which indicate positions where standing stones once stood, or where pits suggest they were intended. The north-east circle is the oldest of the two stone circles at this site, but was only rediscovered during modern excavations of the Temple Wood site.

The low angle of the midwinter light shows the form of the central stone, set amongst river-washed cobbles. More information on the site can be found at the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historic Monuments in Scotland’s (RCAHMS’s) Canmore website here. The Canmore ID for the site is 39504.
