Carved slab, Whithorn

Whithorn Golf Course
A broken sandstone slab with a spiral pecked on one face and two oval-type shapes roughly pecked on the other face.   Slabs like this with decoration on both faces may have been used - or re-used - as covers on burial cists.   The slab is on loan to Stranraer Museum from Historic Scotland.
