Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art

Hunterheugh 1 (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by rockandy Hunterheugh 1. Two large motifs delicately picked on a previously quarried rock surface and partially covered by the Bronze Age cairn removed during excavation. Both motifs are arranged in the same direction showing some similarities but also clear differences in design. That on the left (N'most) is much finer with a faint serpentine groove showing many individual pick marks and apparently incomplete. A prsistine but weakly made cup and ring can be seen above the left hand figure and more heavily eroded (?older) motifs on the rock surface below.
