01/05/2016 - In the end I gave up looking for this one and decided to make my way back to the path through the heather. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking the rock appeared at my feet. Sometimes you can try too hard, better just to let fate decide :-)
This was my favourite rock on the hill (which is covered in cup and ring marked stones). The rings are nice and dobby. It's worth the effort and good fun trying to find.
It's hard work this one - struggled through knee-deep heather to get here, felt like I'd waded through a mile of thick treacle.
Hard to find too: and I was a bit disappoined to find that the beautifully clear stone I'd seen pictured in a book had turned into a monster of a lichen colony!!
One for the determined.
