My second try to walk up to Macleod Standing Stone above Niseabost beach – the first time we got swept away by rain. And again, as soon as I started to walk up the hill, it began to rain again, but at least it made it look more dramatic.
The Standing Stone has been dated to the prehistoric Neolithic period and is believed to have been part of rituals, including funerary rites. The stones around the Standing Stones seem to be the remains of a cairn.
Looking down towards Niseabost Beach – on the other side of the hill lies Horgabost Beach. There is also a walk from one beach to the other one, which I had planned to do, but didn´t due to the rain, which stopped as soon as I had walked down again.
The views from the hill all around are fantastic!
View towards Horgabost.
And again a stop at the Seilebost layby…
