This was part of a souterrain formerly located at NO 6234 4584.
The site was discovered about the middle of the 19th century and exposed again about 1885 when it was probably removed. It was built into a gravelly bank, a dry, well-drained site, but otherwise little is known of it beyond the fact that one of the stones, robbed for building purposes, was later found to bear cup and cup-and-ring marks and was donated to the NMAS by John Hay in 1865. It is an irregular boulder of sandstone 31" by 44" by 11" thick and the whole surface being covered with cups 1" to 2" in diameter and circles 3 1/2" to 9 1/2" in diameter (Acc No IA5).
