Machrie Standing Stones, Arran, Scotland
Machrie Moor, on the west coast of the Isle of Arran, is the site of a number of neolithic structures dating back up to 4500 years ago. These include the six Machrie Moor Stone Circles, and the Moss Farm Road Stone Circles. The standing stones were dated back to approximately 2500 years ago but excavations in the 1980s uncovered elaborate timber structures and stone circles which dated back even further in history.
The beautiful sunshine, which until shortly before had bathed the location with late afternoon warmth, dipped behind clouds forming over Kintyre and my enthusiasm for the flight cooled somewhat. A family arrived, and not wishing to disturb their experience I sat quietly with drone resting on the grass, A conversation began and they clearly were up for seeing it fly, so up it went! On a better day I shall return.
