Mr. Lang, in his article on the' Cup and Ring,'* mentions how in Argyll a woman who desires to have a baby will slide down a cup-marked {i.e., an inscribed) rock, and adds that the sliding is attested by a chief of Clan Diarmid... J. H. RIVETT-CARNAC. Schloss Wildeck, Switzerland.
From Notes and Queries, April 27th, 1901.

*I believe this refers to the 1899 article in the 'Contemporary Review'.

Dalnaneun Farm, Loch Nell (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

From the crannog I headed west, near the first passing place (there is a submerged crannog just to the north) there is a gate that leads north west straight to the chamber cairn, on this occasion surprisingly dry ground. The massive capstone can be seen from the road.

With the night getting darker, a mist was slowly appearing and the whole atmosphere was beginning to change, Loch Nell's water turning grey giving an another shade. Mr G mentions in his notes that colour plays a big part here, he's right, on this occasion it was the reduction in colour as dusk falls.

What appeared to be a cist, perhaps the cist 2m from the chamber?, caught my eye, so did the Serpent Mound and another couple of cairns. However they will be visited next time.

It would be a long trudge /squelch back to the car, I'd completely forgotten that was miles away. However, that was a good thing as I saw the sites I'd visited earlier. I also saw some Highland Coos and their friends who still be appeared to be laughing!

Dalineun Isle (Crannog) — Fieldnotes

After the helpful push into a boggy stream, the two 'other' nearby cairns would have to wait another day plus time was pushing on and I wanted to get the nearby chamber cairn. A swampy trudge back, north east, to the road which I followed straight north until the crannog came into view. Easily seen from the road and further west at a passing place (near a submerged crannog). Also easily viewed from the chamber cairn.

It is well covered in trees and is 30m wide which is about the same distance as it is from the shore.
