Village cross
Village cross
A replica of the original Pictish slab which stood here until 1991 and is now housed in the church. An information board there explains that, "The main face of the slab has an interlace-decorated cross as its chief feature. The way in which the arms of the cross project beyond the sides of the slab probably shows the growing influence of the Scots (who originated in Ireland and western Scotland) in the course of the later eighth and ninth centuries. The reverse of the slab has a number of the enigmatic Pictish symbols, together with illustrations of life which include a hunting scene."
