Standing Stones – Glen Innes

A grouping of 40 granite monoliths were erected by a group of dedicated citizens who wanted to mark the Celtic heritage of Glen Innes. In ancient times Celts raised stones as calendars to mark the seasons that indicated when to sow, harvest – and later the stones developed religious significance.

The Standing Stones, the 40 monoliths, erected in Glen Innes stand 3.7 metres above ground and have been well dug into the ground bring their height to nearly 5.5 metres each.

We enjoyed our picnic lunch overlooking the impressive structures below and looking across over the valley to the hills beyond. It is easy to understand how the ancients found a spirituality amongst these stone giants. We felt peaceful and rested.
