Date Fieldwork Started: 01/04/2019

Compiled by: NOSAS

Location Notes: The panel is one of a number of carved rocks scattered across an area of very rough ground with many low rock outcrops and a number of archaeological features including a chambered cairn and a deserted farmstead with associated buildings and field system. The ground has not been cultivated for a long time, possibly since the settlement was deserted c.200 years ago. It is presently occasionally grazed by sheep and cows but is mainly rough grass. The site is on the S facing slope at the E end of Swordale Hill overlooking Strath Sgitheach. The panel is just to the W and above a dense scatter of boulders and stones, possibly a clearance cairn. Further to the S is a degraded bank which may be part of the field system of the old settlement. The panel has not been moved. All the panels lie within a large area protected within the Scheduled Monument 4945 Drumore, Farmstead, field system, chambered cairn and cup marks. The panel has been recorded previously and a report lodged with Highland Council under the HER number MHG 14145 which includes several of the other carved rocks in this area.

Panel Notes: The panel is a large schist outcrop visible below the turf as roughly an L shape extending SE out of the slope of the ground. It is 1.9m long by 0.8m wide and a maximum height of 0.6m above ground. The panel has a very slight slope to the S. There is 1 shallow cup mark on the E edge of the stone and a possible second cup mark to the N.
