Historians and scientists agree unanimously – and with absolute certainty – that the concentric circular terraces of Moray were made for an important purpose.
What this purpose may have been – they do not know.
Local guides, however, will be delighted to tell you anything they think you’d like to hear. They have finely trained instincts that enable them to correctly classify UFO-buffs, crop-circle enthusiasts, eco-warriors and religious tourists at long distances.
Prepare to have your preconceptions confirmed.
My guide displayed an impressive elasticity in his relationship with facts. That aside, however, Moray was a splendid sight.
Both the place itself and the drive up from the Sacred Valley are spectacular and not to be missed.
