Item image
A roughly triangular stone (max. dims 1.55m x 0.7m; T 0.3m) was recovered in ploughing during 1972 and is now in the NMI (1974: 43). It is a weathered sandstone scored with plough marks and has a single motif of a cupmark with six concentric circles, the outer three of which are incomplete, probably through damage. A radial line crosses all the circles. The inner three circles are closely spaced while the outer three are more widely spaced. There are some small cupmarks separating the inner and outer series of circles.
