Saints and Stones: Pobull Fhinn

Situated on the southwest side of a hill -- Beinn Langais, Pobull Fhinn stands on an artificial, fairly flat platform with portalled entrances on two of its sides. A large circle measuring roughly 125 x 92 feet, it consists of 40 or so stones. Only about half are standing. The tallest stone is a little over six feet.

A truly marvelous setting, it overlooks Loch Langais and a number of other lochs. The highest mountain on North Uist, Ben Eval, is in the distance.
