Details Carving on rock outcrop 5m southeast of the trig point. It is a carving of three fish superimposed in a triangular arrangement between initials WM and C COWIE. Both the fish and initials are evenly weathered with lichen over the incisions. The incised motif, of three intertwined fish, is cut into the NW face of the rock. The tails are, respectively, on the bottom left, the upper left, and centre right of the motif. The fish measure up to 0.53m in length, with a small circular depression in each single eye. The face of the rock also bears a number of other incised letters, including the initials 'TA' above the motif and the letter 'M' close to the left side of the motif. The carving is not Pictish or medieval.
