(NS 5045 7388) Cup and Ring Marked Rock (NR)

OS 6" map, (1938)

Cup and ring marks accompanied by an incised pre-Christian (Bruce 1896) cross set within an oval, and two pairs of scuptured footprints, each foot only having 4 toes. The figures have been carved on the previously prepared surface of an area of rock outcrop. The cup and ring markings have been filled with white paint.

J Harvey 1889; J Bruce 1896; A D Lacaille 1925.

This cup and ring marked rock was entirely covered with turf a few years ago to protect it from vandalism.
