Even in the 18th century the site was still associated with traditions and rituals, by then relating to Norse gods. It was visited by [[Walter Scott]] in 1814, but then a (non local) farmer decided to remove the stones, starting in December 1814 with the destruction of the nearby [[Odin Stone]] which had become legendary.<ref>[http://www.orkneyjar.com/history/odinstone/index.html Orkneyjar – The Odin Stone]</ref> This caused outrage and he was stopped after destroying one stone and toppling another, which was re-erected in 1906 along with some inaccurate reconstruction inside the circle. However, even the few stones that have survived create a powerful atmosphere hinting at the distant past.<ref>[http://www.orkneyjar.com/history/standingstones/ Orkneyjar - The Standing Stones of Stenness]</ref>
