The first new find of the year and my first ever find of a cup marked stone. High on Monael Hill overlooking Glenkindie and the River Don. I counted 18 definite cup marks, maybe there are 3 weathered cups but hard to tell even with the naked eye.
Is it or isn't it ? I dunno ,if pushed I would say it's not prehistoric but obviously not natural ,the stones have been set and the central one toppled . It's not in Canmore or on any map . I can't believe it wasn't noticed by RCAHMS when they visited the nearby hut circle and enclosures .FWIW it's aligned 42 degrees and the resulting declination is about a degree and a half off the major standstill which is probabaly coincidence .But then again , nahh .
