Roughting Linn

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Went to this site last week. Was really quite amazed by the earthworks surrounding the rock.

Seems like a strange place for the 'fort' mentioned by another visitor. It didn't strike me as an easy piece of land to defend. Could there be another explaination for these earthworks?

if you look at the plan and check the topography, you'll find that it is a virtual "promontory fort"
