Full Description

A cup-marked stone located at Drumore Farm, Swordale, photographed in 1987 by P R Campbell as part of a field survey and photographic record of cup marked stones at Druim Mor, Swordale. <1> <2> <3> <4> <5> <6> <7> <8>

The stone was surveyed and photographed by D Scott in 2012. The stone was found by the farmer, Mr John Campbell in the mid 1980s and there are about 25 cup marks and the stone is now not in its original location. Another cup marked stone, now also at Drumore Farm was also unlikely to be in its original location. The first stone was numbered as 28 and the second was numbered as 29. Photographs of both stones can be seen in D Scotts report. <9>

Note: Current NGR is for No. 28's original approximate location.
