The cup-and-ring marks and similar sculptures of SW Scotland: a survey
Cupandring Marks, Survey
Over 150 sites in the counties of Ayr, Arran & Bute, Dumfries, Dunbarton, Lanark, Kirkcudbright, Renfrew and Wigtown have been recorded and tabulated. Information for each includes type and number, maximum diameter and depth of carvings, angle of stone to horizontal, and so on. Only immovable stones are included in the survey, museum material being separately catalogued. Most sites are near the coast, most face south and have extensive views, but only four are on hilltops. No associated material is known.
