There are cup markings on this stone,when you are approaching the stone you can vaguely see them but when you get nearer they become very difficult to see. I managed to get these photos but could not see any rings. hamish Posted by hamish

Heatheryhaugh Cup and Ring Marked Stone
AKA Mains of Creuchies
A massive boulder sits in the shadow of Parknuek and almost at the entrance to this field- 3 m long by 2.7 m wide. The westernmost face of the rock slopes down to the earth and on this face are approximately 15 cup markings- three of which possibly have single rings round them, though the surface is badly weathered making the markings very difficult to see.
