Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Set off on Sunday in the expectation of getting a temperature inversion at Loch Earn but it was just beautiful clear skies , so had to put up with that .
Some new finds , two of which were notable in relation to their relatively limited viewsheds , something that I've noticed with other monuments i.e. they are sited metres away from what would be a very expansive view in most directions but an intervening ridge blocks much of it .In one case the marked rock is actually in the bed of a burn with sides 3m high and therefore a very limited view . By the time I found it the sun had gone in and the cup marks are not at all clear . In the other I have included a pic of the view that is only a matter of metres away .
