It's not above the doorway, as a childhood memory suggested. Rather it is next to the doorway, opposite the gate entrance, you can't miss it. It must be some of the easiest to find rock art ever.

Two, possibly three motifs, the upper two connected.

Reasonably good disabled access too, though the cobbled castle entrance is a bit steep.

Shame it's been moved out of context, but great that it's survived.
