The thing that struck me today about this site, is that it forms a point in a straight line across from Fowberry Mains to Coldmartin Lough. Also on the same line, to within a few metres, are Whitsunbank 3 and Fowberry cairn.

I've never been a great believer in Watkinsesque straight line stuff, but sometimes I do wonder. 4 points on a straight line. Would this be enough to discount random chance? Hmmm.

Over the years there has been some confusion over the rock art location 'Whitsun Bank' probably caused by the fact that the two locations are situated about 500m apart. Whitsun Bank 2 is on outcrop rock (former quarry) in a field along the road, 280 deg. from the gate opposite the entrance to Fowberry Farm. Whitsun Bank 1 is 500m West of Whitsun Bank 2 and consists of lesser and smaller motifs. A very nice area so take your time! rockartuk Posted by rockartuk
