I visited Cairn Holy on Sunday, met a guy who showed me a cup and ring carving on one of the stones at Cairn Holy I. Very difficult to see, but almost obvious once I was shown where it was. It was so erroded that there was no way I would be able to take a photo, it needs low level torch light to bring it out.
We also noticed a pattern of “carvings” or striations on the right hand portal stone, these marks spiral around the circumfrence of the stone:
Has anyone else noticed these carvings? Do you think the carvings on the portal stone are deliberate, intentional, and man-made?
I visited Cairnholy today and took some images of the marks Nicola mentions..take a look, interesting.
