Area 7 lies just to the south of the main track that runs east to west across the moor. It is largely overgrown with heather and the few carved stones here are fairly small and quite difficult to find. This one, stone 7a, at NZ96700106 is a narrow slab with about a dozen cups.

Stone 7b at NZ96700101 is the most decorated of this small group. The western side (left) of the large flat rock has two enclosed cups with a groove enclosing these plus two other cups, to the right a cup is enclosed by a semi-circular groove or what could be a flattened ring. The top of the stone has a line of four cups plus there are several others scattered across the surface. Motif and cups marked with water for clarity.
