That was a good page added. Tiompan, any views on this (I know you've only got a couple of crappy pictures to go on)?


Up on the eastern ridge of the Black Mountains, in a cairn. There are cupmarks at sites to the north (around Kinsham, Radnorshire) and to the east (Harold's Stones at Trellech).

It might easily be natural, but it's oddly symmetrical and on the corner of a block where erosion would seem a bit strange.

Never fair to judge from pics TSC . particularly if negatively . if pushed I would say no . Despite the rock being portable and there being a nearby possible cairn and portables being found in cairns although not in that area afaik phew . It looks a bit big and I wonder why another face wasn't chosen . Single cups are also often the most dificult and they are usually appended "possible " maybe the best bet in the circumstances .
