|Description ||Scarista is believed to have been a full circle, rather than the single standing stone. It may have been rather special in terms of its alignment at sunset.|
When I was researching locations to visit in the Western Isles, I came across a site called starsofwonder, which had some wonderful photos, and I asked its editor for suggestions. As a result, I offered to try and capture the sunset at Scarista, so we spent a glorious evening there.
This photo shows the shadow of the main stone about 19 minutes before sunset on 8 May 2011. The shadow and colours were fascinating - so hopefully I will be sending them off to starsofwonder when I have sorted them out. Probably far too many to post on the Portal, but if anyone is particularly interested, please PM me and I will see if I can put a sequence together somewhere.
