    Description
    The Callanish Stones Site is in the charge of Historic Scotland. Calanais is Gaelic for Callanish - originally it was actually called Callernish - or previous to this Classerniss. The Isle of Lewis affords one of the most complete historic stone circles in Europe. Calanis is the Gaelic for Callanish. Callanish has three sets of stone circles - each being within a mile or so of each other. The Isle of Lewis has many examples of stone circles and the most impressive - the Callnish Stone circle now attracts many visitors from all over the world. The stones - made of Lewisian gneiss - the name deriving from the isle of Lewis. The Lewisian gneiss is one of the oldest rocks in Britain and dates back to around 3000 million years ago - are mostly granite
