Fettercairn Cross
Fettercairn Cross
Fettercairn was granted the right to hold a market and erect a cross in 1504. While it is popularly believed that the shaft was part of the old cross from the abandoned town of Kincardine, brought here in 1730, the capital bears the date 1670. As that is the year when the Earl of Middleton renewed Fettercairn's right to hold a market, RCAHMS concludes that the capital was added in that year to the older shaft of the 1504 cross.
