Cup and Ring Marks Canmore

Near the top of a low hill and extending over several sloping rock outcrops, this is a really impressive collection of cup marks, many with multiple rings and assorted extra ovals and lines around and through them.

Best viewed in late afternoon sunlight when the angle of the light provides helpful shadows. Or in dark and gloomy conditions if you bring your own light.
