Full Description

A cup-marked stone was identified during a watching brief in 2008. It lies a little way to the south of an alignment of boulders. Two cup-marks, apparently aligned along a WSW – ENE axis are visible in the S half of the stone. Running to the E of the most WSW of the cup-marks is a channel running E – W. It is not clear whether this is a natural fissure that has been developed/pecked. The stone measures 0.55m x 0.49m. Additional, possibly natural, circular depressions are visible on the E quadrant and S half of the stone. <1>
