Clach Stèinigidh standing stone in front of Tràigh Mhòr on the west coast of South Harris in the Outer Hebrides. A fleeting ray of sunshine lit up the beach and the stunning aqua sea contrasting with a very brooding sky and a rain shower over the Sound of Taransay.
When the stone was erected some 4,500 to 5,000 years ago, it was one of over a dozen standing stones set in a large circle, 40m in diameter. It was just part of a highly significant place of ceremony and ritual for the stone-using Neolithic farmers of Harris.
