Yes. And it was all one landmass at one time. The Orkneys were simply mountain peaks. Right up until modern times it was easier to sail around than it was to go overland.
I do think that the fact that it WAS one landmass explains pretty well the common traditions and building styles, which means that it goes back much further than the 3rd millennium BC.

I'm going to go a little further off the rails and ask about the tidal wave that swept across Scotland and the British Isles. Any wooden structure built at the time would be swept away...hence building in stone. The wooden post holes at Stonehenge are contemporaneous with the date of the tsunami.

They must really have wanted the henge in that particular site pretty badly to rebuild it.

Well, hurry up! The suspense is killing me!

Kidding, kidding. 😜

ETA: I'm still pondering why Lugh and not Mabon. However, on another level that takes into, of course, Tuatha de Danann territory, and all the associated mythology. There is also the Fir Bolgs and the Fomorians, who seemed to be sailors. And that's not counting Gwydion and company!

Or is that wandering too far afield?
