To the N of Achnabreck farmhouse lie several cup-and-ring marked rock outcrops. The largest, comprising three clusters of markings, forms the most extensive and impressive group of prehistoric rock-carvings in Scotland. Towards the lower end of the sheet there are carvings dominated by multi-ringed and guttered cups accompanied by an extensive network of grooves and, close to the base, a line of four exceptionally large plain cupmarks. At the centre of the sheet there is another group of multi-ringed cups and, higher up the outcrop, there is a third cluster of multi-ringed cupmarks.
