The Barnhouse Stone

The Barnhouse Stone is situated in a field off the main Kirkwall to Stromness road, near the Stenness Kirk. It is said to be aligned with Maeshowe and the midwinter setting sun and is also in a line with the Watchstone, the centre of the Ring of Brodgar and the midwinter sunrise. The stone is tightly surrounded by four strainer posts and a fence which protect it but do not do much for its appearance in the landscape. At least the grass around it is nice and long! It is also covered with nice attractive lichen and moss.
