Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


The outcrop of Buttony is now covered by trees, inhabited by deer (I heard one but couldn't see it).
To find it from the southerly part of Gled Law look to the east, you can see a Pill Box on a hill. The Wooded area behind it contains the Rock Art. My OS map shows it as open countryside but the trees are quite mature.
To the southern edge of the wood is a gate, the rock art is up towards the north-west of the area.
The largest slab is open to the sky so is "spotlit" on a bright day; the two intertwined carvings are towards the top end of the outcrop.
Well worth stooping through the trees :-)
