A stone circle discovered through Google Earth?

Members of the German website Schottlandportal discovered with the help of Google Earth two interesting submerged structures near Loch Clickhimin, Shetland (Scotland). The most prominent of these structures may be a stone circle, while the other looks like a causeway, both dating back to Bronze Age. In ancient times the water level was probably much lower, so these stone settings could have been built originally on an isle.
     The German webmasters got in contact with Scottish archaeologists, in order to make a closer check of the area, so to properly identify - if present - those ancient remains.
