Kilmichael Glassary Decorated Rock Sheet
Lochgilphead, Argyll
Cup and Ring Marks Canmore

Even in the Kilmartin area, rich in decorated rock sheets as it is, Kilmichael Glassary is a fine site. There are several rock faces and boulders that have been carved with cup-marks, and the best of these has been fenced off and is in state care.

The sloping rock surface has a fairly dense covering of deep cup marks. What makes this site a little unusual are the rings around some of the cup marks. Several are key-hole shaped rather than round. Others are incomplete rings. Some enclose several cup marks.
