Rhynie Graveyard

Cup Marked Stone


When parking for visiting the Bell Knowe, hear Rhynie, there is a hut that contains three Pictish stones each with beautiful carvings. On the back of the tallest, called Rhynie 5, there are numerous cup marks suggesting that the Picts were recycling stones used by their Neolithic forebears. The stone is connected to the wall with an iron rod making the taking of photos very tricky indeed. As I've said elsewhere the wooden shack covering these stones is a disgrace and hardly gives the stones any protection!
