Archaeology Notes

NX34SE 49 3628 4471.

Situated some 200m S of Drumtroddan farm, inside the SE of two small fenced enclosures are several boulder-like greywacke outcrops, the biggest being 1.25m by 0.75m by 0.25m high. On them respectively are: (a) On the biggest outcrop: a cup-and-five-complete-rings, with a radial groove downwards from cup to ground.

(b) 3m to its S: a cup-and-five-rings with two faint parallel grooves, both probably from the cup, and also a cup-and-four-complete-rings with a natural bisecting groove.

(c) 4m SW of 'a': a cup-and-six-complete-rings with a natural bisecting groove. This, 35cm in diameter, is the biggest carving in the group.

(d) 6.5m SW of 'a' is a group of four very faint cups-and-rings, two with five rings, one with three rings, and one with two rings.
