The Burgh Cross
The Burgh Cross
An early Christian cross dating from the 9th or early 10th century. The name is a little misleading because it stood originally at Trowan Farm near the village of Strowan three miles south west of Crieff. It may have had some connection with a chapel and holy well there dedicated to the 6th-century Saint Ronan. It is part of a display of historic artefacts connected with the burgh in the basement of the Town Hall.
