Prehistoric Astronomy and Ritual

by Aubrey Burl
"Alexander Thom and Somerville before him, noticed that two passage tombs at Balnuaran of Clava near Inverness faced the midwinter sunset. Since then it has been found that other Clava tombs were planned to look towards the southern moon. A provisional calculation of the declinations of the passage-tomb entrances shows a close correspondence with the solar and lunar extremes." [p.35]
