Cairnbaan Cup And Ring Marks
Cairnbaan Cup And Ring Marks
At the southern end of Kilmartin Glen, in an area blessed with a fabulous range of prehistoric monuments, lie four natural rock faces carved with an array of cup and ring marks. Three rocks lie close together while the fourth is 100 metres away up a winding path.
The rocks are decorated with a profusion of symbols including cup marks, grooves, and cup-and-rings. One particular carving has a series of multiple-ringed cups joined together. One cup connects to an outer ring with radiating grooves, so that it resembles a sun symbol.

The solitary rock is the largest of the four. It bears over 60 cupmarks, several cup-and-rings, and several long grooves linking cup groups.

The carved rocks can be found 200 metres up a signed path behind the Cairnbaan Hotel. A very short distance up the A819 is a forestry road taking you to another cup and ring marked set of stones at Anchabreck.
