Cairnholy 01 & 02 (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by rockartuk A very faint cup and five rings on a almost flat laying stone on the left side behind the facade. The carving can only be seen in the right sunlight around noon, after wetting the stone with (local!) water. The last black&white photo of the carving was published -as "Cairnholy 2"- in Ronald W.B. Morris' book "Rock Art of Galloway & The Isle of Man" (Blandford, 1979), p. 74.
