    Solstice 2009
    I stayed at Castlerigg to watch the sun rise for Summer Solstice this year.  It was warm, dry but overcast .  A crowd numbering probably a few hundred were spread out around and inside the circle, all in their own little groups, with a few burning camp fires and well placed paper lanterns setting a perfect scene and great atmosphere. 

    The narrow lane that takes you up to Castlerigg does however get very bsy and double parked quickly, making it very narrow in places, which a large van in front of us found out fairly quickly as it got stuck and had to reverse back.

    I would just like to say to everyone who was at Castlerigg….Happy Solstice Guys ๐Ÿ™‚

    Spectaular doesn’t even cover it!
    Surrounded by mountains this site is totally amazing, would love to do a solstice here just not with hoards of people!
    The power within ‘the cove’ is wonderfully healing

    The stones definitely reflect the mountains – I have a fab picture taken towards the valley (with the road behind you) and the shape of the stone exactly matches the slopes of the valley sides. Not daft, these stone-age types!

    And I second the parking issue. Summer visitors beware ๐Ÿ™
