Visit Notes

Sunday, 30th June 2002

I didn't catch this stone in the best light. I could see the markings easy enough but photographically had little success.

The carvings seem to include some cups, cup and rings and crosses. There are also several foot prints cut inyo the rock. Most of them look like foot prints that a child would draw, but one of them looks very shoe like - about a size five I'd say.

I can't think when would be a good time of day would give you good light on this stone, but it is worth seeing if you're in the area.

About Coordinates Displayed

This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.

Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.

Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.

The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.

UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.

ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
