    Drumtroddan Cup and Ring Markings

    Located in Galloway NX363447, a couple of miles from Port William on the Isle of Whithorn. The area is full of sites with these features, as well as numerous standing stones. The marks at Drumtroddan have an interpretation board and are easily accessible on foot.

    Not brilliant images, as the light was a bit flat

    "IRISH FOLKWAYS" E ESTYN EVANS - A must read with a superb section on old pishrogues - explains the meaning and purpose of Cup & Ring stones.
