Baluachraig image

In a protective enclosure 230 m north-west of Dunchraigaig cairn there are three rock outcrops, profusely decorated with plain cupmarks and cup-and-ring markings.
The largest (8.9m x 2.2m) and most decorated rock-sheet (in the photo) bears at least 127 plain cupmarks and 32 cup-and-rings. The decoration is rather simple compared to other similar sites such as Achnabreck.
The other two rock-sheets (measuring 1.8m x 1.8m and 2.4m x 1.7m) bear ten cupmarks (to the west) and one cup with a single ring and a plain cupmark (to the north). The markings were chipped out of the rock with a stone hammer.
