On high ground to the N of the Cairnbaan Inn there are two groups of cup-and-ring markings (Campbell and Sandeman 1964).

Situated within a metal railing there are three cup-and-ring marked rock outcrops. The decoration on the largest rock-sheet comprises a pair of cups surrounded by three partial rings, one cup with two rings, three cups within a single ring, sixteen single cups with single rings, at least sixty plain cups, and several lengths of grooving. A particular feature of this rock-sheet are the long gutters that run downslope from seven of the cups at the S end of the outcrop.

On a rock outcrop which lies towards the centre of the enclosure there are six plain cupmarks, and another outcrop at the NW of the enclosure bears three cups with double rings and six plain cups (Campbell and Sandeman 1964; Morris 1977).
