Archaeology & History
This is impressive. Very impressive! Found amidst a cluster of other prehistoric sites in the Forest of Alyth, the Scottish Royal Commission lads reported (North-East Perth, 1990:26-7) that,
“this heavily weathered cup-and-ring marked boulder lies 150m south of the hut circles… The carvings are on the southwest face of the boulder and comprise: at least four cups surrounded by single rings; two cups surrounded by triple rings; an oval cup measuring 100mm by 70mm surrounded by four rings; and twenty-two plain cups marks, the largest 60mm in diameter.”
