Description

This panorama is taken above the carved rock known as the ‘Idol Stone’. The motifs consist of about 25 cups, some of which are in parallel lines and enclosed in grooves. A further curvilinear groove has been carved on the outer edge of the stone, enclosing the whole design.

Three other carved rocks can be found within 3metres, leading some to suggest that these carvings may have once resided in a cairn. The lack of erosion on the Idol Stone would suggest that it has been away from the effects of weathering for some time.

In addition to several other carved rocks in the area, several stretches of prehistoric walling and cairns can also be found.
