A fifth bullaun at this site! I returned here to show a friend III and IV then decided to have a scout around for I and II and came across another one. It has 2 bullauns, a very shallow one about 7 cms across and 3 cms deep (almost just a cup-mark) and a much deeper ovoid one, about 12 cms on the longer axis and very deep. The rock has fissured through the larger bullan and seems to me to have been moved to where it now lies, possibly causing this damage.
I never located I and II.
