Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art

Wandylaw (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by rockandy Possible new cup-marked stone, S of the Wandylaw cluster. This slab appears to have a large cup near to one edge and the eroded remains of an OS bench mark on the surface. Is this a prehistoric carving or something more recent?

The portable slab lies next to the Parish Boundary fence close to a Boundary Stone and footpath (NU 1376 2434). Old maps (1856-1865) show the presence of a Sharplaw Cairn near to this site and also the OS survey point of 600ft.
