Newlaw Hill 1

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Visited 29-5-05. Parked nearby at the junction into a farm. Walked about 50 yards west to a place near a tree where we could get over the wall. The ground over to the hill was a bit boggy in places but not too bad...

6-fig GPS coordinates would have taken us further up the hill but found it on the way. 10-fig coordinates NX 73322 48861

Spent a little while cleaning it up ready for its pictures and the true character was revealed - wow!!! Really impressed by this one. Two cups in particular were really deep, as if they were natural holes that had been enhanced...

The view from the site is towards inland hills, can't really see the sea from here.

Back at the car trying to decided where to go next a helpful woman (did she really exist?!) came to offer directions...must have been the fact we were wrestling with maps in the car that made us look helpless!!
