Archaeology Notes

NN63NW 1 6204 3721 and 6204 3724.

NN 617 375. Eleven cup and ring marks on a rock outcrop, 4'6" x 3'2", 110 yds below the second cattle grid and E of the Edramucky Burn. Thirty yards NE is a rock, 6'2" x 6'6", with two cups and rings.

Breadalbane Archaeol Soc 1964; S W Feather 1965

The rock at NN 6204 3721 has at least eleven and possibly twelve cup marks, two of which appear to have very faint rings. The rock at NN 6204 3724 has two faint cup marks, but there is no definite evidence of rings. Although the descriptions given above differ somewhat, there is no doubt that they refer to the same site.

These two cup-and-ring marked boulders are situated 30m apart in mature forestry to the W of the unclassified road from Lochtayside to Bridge of Balgie. That to the S (BL00 1197; NN 6204 3721) bears two cups with two concentric rings each, one cup with two rings and a gutter, and at least twelve plain cups on its upper surface. The cups measure up to 70mm in diameter and 20mm in depth, and the largest ring measures 260mm in diameter. The boulder to the N (BL00 1198; NN 6204 3724) bears one cup with three rings, one cup with three rings and a gutter, and two plain cups. The cups measure up to 60mm in diameter and about 10mm in depth, while the largest ring measures 300mm in diameter.
