More information:

Cup and ring marked stones have a wide distribution, found in upland areas of northern Britain. Some of the cups are able to hold small amounts of liquids or solids, but in other cases, including the Heights of Fodderty stone, some of the cups are pecked into faces of the rock at angles. Usually the stones and boulders are found lying down, but occasionally, as at the Clava Cairns near Inverness, the stones are even oriented upright, so that the cups are on end. Some areas are particularly rich in stones, notably Kilmartin Glen in Argyll, with certain regional preferences in artistic motifs.
