flat slab of Rock
Art can be difficult to find even though it lies near to a bell pit southeast
of the Dobrudden Farm and fairly close to a track.
It has around twenty-five mostly small cups scattered over it with the main carvings on the west and north side. The first group consists of three large linked cups with an oval groove running around them, the whole motif looking a little like a stylized face. The second group is a complex and confusing pattern that includes six deep cups, some with rings, some joined, and with a deep groove around the formation. There is also a deep groove on the southern side of the stone.
Date: Bronze Age
