Blackhills House

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


No supernatural forces leapt out from the stone. Indeed it was very well behaved and the rain only came on once I'd sat in the car. Thank goodness, I was done in after Sleepiehill and Findrassie. The adventures of these will told in their fieldnotes.

From Elgin head east and take the B9103 heading south east. Take the 2nd minor road heading west indicated Blackhills. Go till you see the the sign for the house, it said private but I waltzed in anyway. Rang the foghorn, I mean doorbell no reply, so I took some pics. The stone is kept undercover and is well looked after.

Various ring marks, cup marks and some Pictish stuff are all on this superb stone. A great way to end the day.
