|The Sacred Pentagram of Scotland
Set out over Scotland there is a vast pentagram
pattern that includes a number of Scotlands key sacred sites.
The base of this pattern is
derived from an alignment between the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Iona, The line passes through an old stately home that is now used as a hotel
called Mavishall. The centre point
of the line between Mavishall and Iona is an island on Loch Lomond. The line from Iona to Callanish passes through Dunvegan Castle on Skye. The centre
point on the line from Callanish
to the Ring of Brodgar on the Orkneys is very close to the northern
tip of Scotland Cape Wrath. The
eastern point is created by stone circle now largely destroyed called
the Skelmuir Hill circle. The
pattern is centred on an island in the middle of Loch Moy.
The triangle of Mavishall, Iona and Loch Moy is equal in size to the triangle of Callanish, Ring of Brodgar and Loch Moy both incorporating exactly the same geometry
as that found in the Great Pyramid of Egypt. The line from Mavishall to Loch Moy, when extended bisects the triangle of Callanish, Ring of Brodgar and Loch Moy and the line from The Ring of
Brodgar to Loch Moy, when extended bisects the triangle of Mavishall, Iona and Loch Moy in Loch Lomond.
||An island in the
centre of Loch Moy, home of the Mackintosh Clan, forms the heart of
Scotland's sacred pentagram pattern. How fitting that an obelisk was
erected here in the 1800's.
It should be noted that this is not an
exact pentagram but one that incorporates Great Pyramid geometry in a
very subtle and clever way. The diagram below shows how this is done.
The Scotland Pentagram based on internal angles associated with Great Pyramid of Egypt. The two pyramid triangles are Loch Moy, Callanish, Ring of Brodgar and Loch Moy, Iona and Mavishall.
The intersecting mid-points are Cape Wrath and Loch Lomond.
Great Pyramid of Egypt is based on a simple ratio of 14 (height) :11
(half base). This triangle was used in ancient Egypt a simple
method for calculating the circumference of a circle. See article on Sekeds.
