Possible new Cup Marked Rock near Helensburgh?

Select a forum:
Out for a walk earlier in the week in great light when I cam across the large gritstone rock in the link below. Most of the rock is covered with what looks like parallel glacial scarring and water erosion (?) but there are two possible cup marks - 1) small half way up on the left, about 1/5th of the width in 2) larger, moss filled below the first.

What do folks think? Context is in a grazing field on a SSE facing slope, 3/4 pf the way up Tom Na H-airidh near Helensburgh. Looks like it's been there since the ice age, lots of glacial erratics in the area and other cup marked rocks in the area - this one isn't marked as such on any maps/sites I can find.
