I've just updated the website with 25 new photos of the standing stones at Peterhead Farm near Gleneagles.
One of the stones was reused by the Picts around the 7th or 8th century and has been carved with "rectangle" and "goose" symbols. The stones are fairly small - around a metre high - but the view is spectacular and I was treated to some beautiful winter light when I was there this morning.

I've just added a new page to the website with 21 photos of a cup-and-ring decorated boulder just south of Luss on Loch Lomond.
Rock art is often hard to find; this example is conveniently by the roadside with a great big sign showing you exactly where it is.

I've just added a (brief) page to the website with 5 photos for the Strathmiglo Pictish symbol stone.

Strathmiglo is a small town between Perth and Glenrothes. The symbols were probably carved in the 8th Century AD and the stone was re-used as a gatepost with the carvings being noticed in the 1960s after the gatepost had fallen.

And just a few hundred metres from the Loupin' Stanes you'll find the Girdle Stanes stone circle near Lockerbie. The River White Esk has moved over the centuries and has gradually washed away the Girdle Stanes, so now it's more of a stone semi-circle. Wonderfully atmospheric with its twisty hawthorn trees.
I've just added 17 new photos to the website.

A few miles north of Lockerbie, the Loupin' Stanes is linked to the nearby Girdle Stanes stone circle by a further row of stones.
