The cup and ring marked stone at Newbigging Farm, Perth & Kinross District, Tayside Region
Ring Marked Stone, Cup
Newbigging Farm, Perth & Kinross, Tayside, Scotland, UK
In 1981 it was noticed that the Newbigging (or Gladsfield) stone, a scheduled ancient monument, had slipped from its erect position to an angle of about 45 degrees from vertical. A small excavation was carried out by the Central Excavation Unit of SDD (Ancient Monuments) to establish whether the stone should be re-erected or moved to the side of the field in which it stood, this being the wish of the farmer.
