Reasearchers have discovered a massive magnetic anomaly near one of the Outer Hebrides’ main stone circles.
They suggest that this is the result of a massive lighting strike or many smaller strikes.
The ancient stone circles were built thousands of years ago in what is now known as the Outer Hebrides.
These mysterious constructions have stunned researchers and history fans for decades.
Now, a huge magnetic anomaly has been discovered on one of the main stone circles, known as the Tursachan Chalanais, located on the Isle of Lewis.
The scientists suggest it is due to a massive lightning strike or smaller ones. But what if this enigmatic creation was just a protal to another dimension?
The magnetic abnormality was discovered while searching for ancient lost circles buried in grass in the area.
It was measured in a lone-standing stone facing the main Site XI, or Airigh na Beinne Bige.
The scientists write that such clear evidence for lightning strikes is extremely rare in the UK and the association with this stone circle is unlikely to be coincidental.
It is however unknown if the lightning at Site XI focused on a tree or rock which is no longer there, or the monument itself attracted strikes.
This again shows that the forces of nature were intimately linked with everyday life and beliefs of the early farming communities in Scotland.
