I was given permission to park at Auchernack Farm by the owner, she was very proud of the site and certainly knew all about the cup marks. From the farm I headed south east following track until a small stables. Once past the gate keep following the track until you see a track heading up into the wood. Take this track and follow it until it's end. Over the gate, look east and over the next gate.

The pylons are actually good for directions, head east in their direction, once the land evens out the cup marked rocks can be seen.

This rock has 23 marks, I counted in the hope of finding more but. Superb views over the Cairngorms.

Brae of Revack 2 / 3 (Cup Marked Stone) — Fieldnotes

There are two other rocks with cup marks at Brae Of Revack :

NJ0364524514 Slightly to the east, Canmore days 5 cups, I think there 6, one very slight mark near the group.

NJ0361924518 To the north westish of the main stone, Canmore says 2, I say three. 1 well preserved cup mark with two that are hard to spot.

I would think there is a lot of rock art in the area, yet to be discovered Not to far away on the north side of the Spey, is Laggan Hill, home to 3 cairns and on its western flank, loads of cup marked rocks.
