Dating back to around 5,000 years ago, this highly complex collection of rock art is one of the finest examples of its kind in Britain. The cup and ring mark carvings are abstract, with no human or animal figures.
We can only guess at what these markings meant to Kilmartin Glen’s Neolithic inhabitants.
This site is a part of a rich prehistoric landscape that survives in Kilmartin Glen to this day. No other place in Scotland has such a concentration of prehistoric carved stone surfaces and Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments.
