Kilmartin Glen in Argyll is one of the richest prehistoric landscapes in Scotland, with many standing stones that were probably erected more than 3,500 years ago.  These linocuts feature standing stones at Ballymeanoch and Nether Largie, and cup & ring markings from rock outcrops at Glasvaar and Ormaig, Temple Wood and a crannog (lake dwelling).

The meaning of cup and ring markings is unknown.  Such carved rocks may have been maps or territory markers, markers of meeting places or ritual sites, or were perhaps used to chart the movement of the sun, moon and stars, meeting places, or ritual sites

Little is known about the people who erected them, or their motives, but their legacy lives on in the long shadows cast on the land by these enduring monuments.
