I passed within two metres of this profusely cupmarked sheet of rock just two years ago on my way to the stone row about half a mile south west.
Follow diections for Inveryne stone row and watch out for a small lake with a disused dam on your left and old tennis court to your right. Plenty of parking .
A long sheet of flat rock is right next to the track and dam, with maybe 63 cupmarks, the landowner says in low light rings can be seen round some cups, I couldnt see any rings and I don't think I saw 63 cups (did see a lot though), but it was cool to see something after all my failures throughout the morning.
Normally this would be the end of my mornings stone hunt and I would now have the long and pianful trip back home, but not today, I'm staying on for another rough night in the car, a glutton for punishment ? no not at all, I hate sleeping in the car, but it is free, and what a view from the window.
