Achnabreck, upper panel SW, Kilmartin GlenYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Achnabreck is a rock art site located in Kilmartin Glen, Argyll, Scotland. It has some of the most extensive panels of prehistoric art in Britain and Ireland, and also some of the largest motifs. The south-western section of the upper panel features carvings that have been woven into the already distinctive natural grooves and fractures upon the outcrop. These seem to have been significant since one of the largest circular images appears to emerge from a fissure and is divided by a series of geological grooves.
On a clear day there are extensive views as far as the Isle of Arran to the south. This location may have been chosen because it overlooks possible routeways into Kilmartin Glen, which was focus for prolific rock art creation and monument building in the Neolithic and Bronze Age.
