These are excellent examples of cup and ring marks. Make sure you start from the correct car park where the route is signed though - we got very confused trying to follow our guidebook from the higher carpark but found them in the end. It's a shame the main site is fenced off and the central marking can't be viewed but we understand the need to protect them. Perhaps a raised hide with a telescope to view them??

Very pleasant walk from the car park - about 500 yards uphill will bring you to some of the most impressive cup and ring rock art in the UK. Try to go when the sun is low in the sky rather than midday - to carvings are much clearer . There are a number of useful information boards too.

Yes, found car park, found the hill fort, but the forestry work has made the area a muddy shambles.
Didn't find the cup & rings here, gave up after trying to cross the area where all the trees have been felled & the bits left are strewn to trip the unwary. No useful signage - wasted journey.

This is easy to find because there are signs that lead you to it. Unfortunately as of 9/10/13, the parking lot and trail were still closed. The signs stated the work was scheduled for completion by 8/30/13. We were disappointed because this one of the things we wanted to see the most!
