Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art

Hunterheugh 1 (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by rockandy Hunterheugh 1. Cup and ring marked rock with strings of cups linked by grooves running down the rock surface, probably representing the early phase of rock carving at the site. This surface was illustrated by Stan Beckensall (2001) as Hunterheugh 1b. There is a cluster of cups on the higher (right) side. Linked cups run down the slope of the rock towards an heavily eroded cup with a faint double ring and a deep cup surrounded by a faint ring partly made up from an arc of small cups on its left-hand side. An arc of three cups runs towards the eroded motif from a higher boss of the rock surface, each cup getting shallower and equally spaced.
