Can be seen from the road, the B8000, two miles past Lachlan castle in a field opposite a smokery.
At Lephinmore there is a large rock outcrop with a long quartz seam running through it, Canmore says only....
On two of the lower shelves of a large angled prominent outcrop in a field opposite a smokery, 9 clear cups.
It was easy enough to find but I could only find two clear cups, perhaps the others were under the grass at the edges or under a clump of pull resistant moss. I was glad to have found something, but dissapointed not to find what I expected, is rock art hunting always like this?
It was beginning to be "one of those days".
