Pagan Eye: The Watchstone on Orkney, Scotland
As Scottish people vote today on whether they want Scotland to become independent or stay part of the United Kingdom, I thought I would post this picture I took when I was in Orkney earlier this year.
The picture shows an impressive monolith known as the Watchstone, which is on the bank where the Stenness and Harray lochs meet, close to the Standing Stones of Stenness. It is a beautiful place, full of amazing archaeological sites.
As much as I love Scotland, I'm not going to give my opinion on how the people of that country should vote today. That is up to them. Whatever is decided, I certainly plan to visit Scotland again in the future.
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
