About 80 metres further along the vehicle tracks that are shown in NS3678 : Carman Muir is the south-western end of a low ridge, where several fairly flat areas of bedrock are exposed to view.

On one of them, the low winter sun highlighted the markings that are shown in this photograph. Others, similar to these, could be seen on nearby outcrops. The roughly circular markings caught my attention, although, as far as I know, they are natural.

There are, however, several antiquities nearby on the muir; see, for example, NS3678 : The first of a group of three cairns, NS3678 : Grass-covered ancient cairn, and NS3678 : Round enclosure on Carman Muir.
