One of about 1300 stone circles in the United Kingdom, Castlerigg doesn’t have anything special going for it other than spectacular views.
None of the stones are particularly large, although they might have at one time stood much higher than they do now. We walked the perimeter and took photos of three or four at a time.
On a clear day, these would probably be more impressive, but the view was still stunning. We’re heading south next, to pay a visit to the home of a poet laureate.
