NM80NE 1 8627 0988.

NM 864 099. An Iron Age (Thomas 1961) carving of a roe-buck 11" overall, is incised in thin sharp lines on a small inconspicuous stone on the SW slope of a possibly partly artificial mound in the mouth of a high pass in Glen Domhain. The stone is at present marked by a sherd of drain-pipe.

The carving is locally said to mark the spot where the last native reindeer stag was killed (Argyll County Council 1914).
