We visited Long Meg stone circle at Litha. I love going to this circle, it has a familiar feel to it, not entirely sure what mind you. Folklore says that you cannot count the same amount of standing stones each time you count them – but every time I have counted them I have gotten the exact same number – 69 stones. Apparently, so the legend goes, the stones are a coven of witches who were celebrating a sabbat, when a saint or magician came along and turned them all into stone. I think most stone circles have a similar legend attached to them, to be fair, lots of superstition surrounding them that gives rise to weird and wonderful stories.
For us this was a lovely afternoon out.
