Archaeology Notes

NT26SW 18 2467 6261

A fine cupmarked boulder lies in the churchyard of Glencorse Parish Church. It measures 0.91m by 0.74m and 0.34m in thickness and bears at least twenty-six cupmarks, ten of them with encircling ring-marks. The stone is reported to have been found on the hill above the old parish church (NT 2452 6303). There is said to have been a second cup-and-ring marked stone at the old parish church, but it is now lost.
