The Blathaisbhal Stones

This linear setting of standing stones lies on the northwest shoulder of Blathaisbhal of North Uist. The stones are aligned with another standing stone some three kilometres away in Bealach Maari, the low pass between the hill of Maari (to the left) and the distinctive hump of Crogary Mor (to the right). There is said to be a cave of gold atop Crogary Mor. When I climbed it I found no gold, but the view over North Uist and the Sound of Harris was something to treasure.
