Cup Marked Stone


A few years ago I found a marked rock about three miles from here and at a height of 690 m it was esily the highest in the UK and I didn't think it that likely to find anything much higher .
Until these two .They are not much to look at but the context is astonishing . The boss and surrounding groove is at 844 m and the cup mark is at 1011 m . .When you consider the latter is higher than Skafell and there are only 120 hills above 1011m in Scotland the chances of finding something higher is diminishing .
