Explore the Callanish Stones

In 2005, Emma Rennie of the Callanish Blackhouse Tearoom commissioned a high-resolution 3D laser scan of the Callanish Stones. A team of experts has now created a spectacular interactive version of Callanish I that can be walked around and used to visualise the combination of archaeology and astronomy!

The Callanish3D project lets you explore the Callanish I megalithic setting inside Stellarium, an Open Source planetarium for your computer.

Callanish3D is the first publicly available 3D dataset for Stellarium!
