Description:

Location/Setting: This boulder is located on private land, in a forestry plantation surrounded by pasture. It is situated to the north of Keocha Brook, which is not visible from the panel, but the sound of the flowing water can be heard.

The Rock: The surface of this earthfast granite boulder (1.55m long x 1.47m wide x 0.64m thick) slopes slightly towards the southwest. It is located around 0.80m east of a smaller boulder (1m long x 0.73m wide), that is level with the ground and which is also decorated with a number of cupmarks.

The Art: A small cluster of six, shallow cupmarks (4-5cm diam.) is located in the northeast corner – the highest point of the main horizontal surface. It is very difficult to see these cupmarks in natural light.
