Location Notes: This, and Uplands 2, are likely to be the panels seen in 1923. There are 3 other panels at or nearer to Fluchlady. The panel is located in an area of sparsely planted mature deciduous trees, on land sloping gently to the SE and immediately W of a boggy area, the source of the Allt na Laitch which flows S to the Cromarty Firth, and the Clyne Burn which flows N then E around Cnoc Ravoch. There are long range views to the S over the Cromarty Firth and to the Black Isle. The view to the E is limited by the rounded shape of Cnoc Ravoch.

Panel Notes: The panel is a four-sided slab of schist, 1.8m x 1.2m, lying flat in the ground with a maximum height of 0.1m. Its carved surface slopes at 17 degrees to the E. It is divided approximately N-S by a strong S-shaped groove or step of geological origin. In the E section are 5 cups, one of which is on the dividing line, and a narrow slot. At the N end of this section the rock is largely quartz, with coarser crystals, and there are two fine E-W cracks, one of which cuts 2 of the cups. The W section has 10 district cups.
