Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


There are six areas of decoration here as listed in the Royal Commission Inventory and the Kilmartin extract.

The two areas which you see when you arrive at the site (with the rosetttes and the graffiti) are, in the Inventory, one site - number (1).

Number (2) is described as "a steeply sloping finger of bare rock a short distance N of (1)". It is about 6m long running N to S. Heavily decorated including a further rosette.

Number (3) is "immediately W of the top of (2)" - two groups of cups and single rings.

Number (4) is 2m NNW of (3). Six plain cups.

Number (5) is 1m N of (4). Nine cups and five cups with single rings.

Number (6) is 4m N of (2). Ten cups.

(2) to (6) are in the forest, covered in pine needles and may be difficult to find.
