Kilmartin must be one of the most interesting prehistoric landscapes in the UK. There are several locations where inscribed rocks can be observed. Notice that the original Ministry of Works sign directs visitors to ‘Kilmichael Glassary Inscribed Rocks’. The Scotland guide described it as ‘Kilmichael Glassary’ with the description, ‘Cup-and-ring scribings of Bronze Age date on natural rock outcrop’. The official site name for Historic Scotland is ‘Kilmichael Glassary Rock Art’.
