Archaeologists search for 'enormous' ancient ritual site on Scottish island


An excavation is now underway at Drumadoon on the Isle of Arran after the site of a possible Neolithic cursus monument was earlier detected by an aerial laser scan.

Cursus monuments were typically formed of a long avenue, formed by two parallel mounds of earth – or wooden posts in the earliest cases – which stretch for some 800 metres at Drumadoon.

Glaid Stone (Natural Rock Feature) — Fieldnotes

The Glaid Stone is a natural erratic stone deposited on top of Barbay Hill, 2 km N of Millport. It is c. 12 feet long with a 4x4 feet cross section. The Glaid Stone is quite impressive however the panorama from the summit is more impressive.
Barbay Hill is the highest point on Great Cumbrae at 127 m above sea level.
A minor road from Millport winds past the Glaid Stone completing a picturesque 7 km circuit back to Millport.
