Old 18th century tombstone, Fetterangus kirkyard.
Old 18th century tombstone, Fetterangus kirkyard.
The old kirk of Fetterangus, reputedly built circa 1120 and dedicated to St. Fergus, was granted to the monks of St. Thomas of Arbroath by Ralph Le Neym about the year 1200. Only the remnants of the four walls remain in the form of loose rubble stones on a slight mound in the kirkyard.
There are approximately 37 recumbent 18th century tombstones in the yard, 2 of which are particularly well-decorated with old grave symbols including crossed femurs, skulls, coffins and hour-glasses.
