The Neolithic 'Barnhouse Settlement' is just by the shore of Loch of Harray. Only a short walk from the Standing Stones of Stenness.
It was discovered in 1984 during a field walking expedition by an archeologist, excavations took place between 1986 and 1991, over time revealing the base courses of at least 15 houses. The houses had central hearths, beds built against the walls and stone dressers, each dwelling appears to have been free standing.
The settlement dates back to circa 3000 BC. The houses were clustered around a central open area, this was divided into areas for making pottery and the working of flint, bones and hides.
Evidence suggests that settlement was abandoned around 2600 BC, the buildings being demolished after they were no longer of use. This has lead to the idea that the settlement was used to house the people who were instrumental in the construction of the stone ring, when the project was completed the workers moved on. Another suggestion is that the houses were the homes of an elite group of priests. No ones knows for sure, and probably never will.
The photo shows the entrance to one of the houses nearest to the loch.

Looking at what use to be the footprint of a giant, I feel as small and insignificant.
A small piece in a puzzle that keeps changing around me.
All I can do, Is simply admire and get out of the way.
Maybe just try and leave a footprint, so someone else might admire one day.
Taken with a very dark ND filter (ND128) on top of my Sigma 10-20 lens @10mm.
13 seconds of exposure with the sun setting behind me.
