Archaeology Notes

NH67SE 30 6832 7366.

NH 683 737. In 1976, a boulder bearing cup-and-ring markings was recorded here, in Newmore Wood. (As the RCAHMS field surveyors give no further information about this stone, presumably it was not located by them, having become overgrown.)

J E Kirby 1976; RCAHMS 1979.

An obviously displaced stone lies at NH 6832 7366 in a coniferous plantation. It measures 0.8m by 0.6m by 0.3m thick, and bears on its upper surface a cup mark 0.08m in diameter encircled by the remains of a ring 0.2m in diameter.

Surveyed at 1:10,000.

Visited by OS (J B) 23 February 1981.
