Ravensheugh Crags cup marked stone (Wark)

This small sandstone boulder to the south-east of the summit of Ravensheugh Crags is decorated with a line of eight cup marks. To the south of the rock is a mound with some stone protruding from it. These may be small burial cairns. Cup marked rocks are believed to date to the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age.
