It's a curious one. Do you know of any traditons of a footprint on stone where, if you were to look at it, it would seem to be just a natural scoop or depression?

Near here there's a standing stone in the townland of Tullig, described in the inventory as having a "depression on top (of stone) locally said to be footprint." An ovoid groove (or uamh, you might say (ha, ha)) , on examination.

This other, in Maulatanvally, is slightly more foot-shaped but would have been on the flat (vertical) face of the stone, when it was standing. Interesting, to hark back to the white cow thread, that it's accompanied by three quartz (standing? well two are anyway) stones.
