|Description ||Ballochmyle, Ayrshire, Grid Ref: NS 5120 2540.
Located just SW of the village of Mochlin, East of Ayr with public access.
A nice panel of rock art with combined motifs. The one above looks like an aeroplane. |
| OMG! Do not let your similacrities carry away your logic. This is a natural clock and calander stone. A rounded dowel is lashed to a standing stick to form an L shaped gnomon. The short end of the "L" is placed in one of the "cup marks" along the top lines to give annual time, the shadow is then followed to see hours and minutes, possibly even seconds. See Martin Brennan... Stars and Stones. First printing. Check out the dedication page. The Neolithic people worshipped these events, to them watching the shadow and beams move was a form of ritual worship, it is also a form of early intuitive or phenomenological science. Hank Harrison|
