Abstract


The article considers the use of megaliths and large boulders as markers for boundaries and meeting places and the traditions surrounding them in the Loch Lomond area. An incised cross pillar at Suie is thought to be early Christian. In Alloway, the relationship of crosses at Cambusdoon and Blairston with Mungo's Well are considered. A short cist discovered at Ednam contained a crouched skeleton and a worked flint.
