Cup & Ring marked stone by Clarksburn Wood detail
Cup & Ring marked stone by Clarksburn Wood detail
There is one obvious pattern of at least three concentric rings and a cup at the centre.
Two descriptions (in 1979 and 1987) suggest much more.
The latter reads:-
"This rock proved to have: a cup and four complete rings; a cup and three rings, the outer incomplete, and a possible tail to a runner-cup in the second ring; a cup and two incomplete rings with a tail; three cups with (parts of) one ring; and at least six cups and a few doubtful ones."
