Location Notes: Close to the top of a SE facing slope, this panel has extensive views over Swordale, the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle. It is one of a group of 23 panels in a scheduled area SM4945, the outline of which used to be fenced and is still visible. This panel, alongside panel Druim Mor 22, is the most southerly of the group and can be found approximately 10m to the NW of the SE boundary, 40m to the NE of the S most edge of the scheduled area, 75m to the E of the SW edge, and 55m to the SW of the W end of the footing of a ruined building.

Panel Notes: This panel has been carved onto a section of a rock slab which is approximately 22cm thick. It has a flat, smooth rock surface which gently slopes to the E. The exposed area measures 135cm in length by 65cm in width; it rises to a maximum of 20cm above ground level at the S end and is inset into the hillside at the N end. Probing around the exposed area suggested that the total slab length is 170 cm. The surface and edge is marked by foliation which dips 60 degrees ENE. There are 8 doubtful cups and one possible cup in a line along the S edge. Some turf was removed along the upper side, but no further motifs were found.
