Hi Folks, Went walking over Blackmyre moor yesterday, rather than trying to find something i knew about, i was looking for new carvings. I spotted this really nice rock, it is covered in depressions, almost certainly natural.I do think that perhaps this rock did have carvings at sometime, perhaps before natural effects took their toll. I say this mainly because of the place the rock is situated. We have a burn on either side of the rock, a burn behind which flows through the moor and on into both the burns to the sides. It also has a 360 degree around the rock, from where you look to the sea, to Glenquicken, to Cambret Hill, Cairnharrow and Cairnholy. I would think there can be few other idealy placed rocks for carvings, especially in Galloway.Also take into account the panel that is in the Stewartry museum which came from Blackmyre farm, then this area is ideal.
