Both have stones that are angled at the top
I think it may need further research, there are many stone cicles throughout the old Nordic world.

Good luck with this one

Hmmm I would say Scotland or Ireland, but the fact that we see sunglasses & sunshine has got me confused

Alan.
. Very good guesses.

It was undoubtedly one of the nicest, sunniest, most beautiful days ever seen on that normally cold and gloomy island! (there's your hint.) The standing stones are on a hill between water and water. ...

It is NOT Stonehenge, the trilithons (stones with crosspieces) are missing.

There is also a ring of stones at Avebury also in the South UK?? Same area as Stonehenge.

I prefer Avebury Ring, as it's much larger, encircling the village and you can get right up to them
There is also a small area between the two called Woodhenge, which looks like it might have been interesting, but obviously the wood has long since rotted

Exclamation Henge

There are so many rings of standing stones in Celtic Europe, and they are all fascinating.

For some reason, the one that spoke to me, far more than Stonehenge did, was this one, the Ring of Brodgar on the island of Orkney. Rather than on a plain, it stands on a high hill between water and water -- the ocean and a bay or inlet. Nearby is the famous excavation at the Neolithic village of Skara Brae, where the people who erected the henge lived and worked.

Our shore excursion took us there in school buses, the only thing on the island able to handle a ship full of people. They declared a school holiday so the ship could use the buses.

Well I named it as Stenness - which is where the Ring of Brodgar is located.

Right, Annie!

The Ring of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar are different rings, located on the same island.
