Sueno's Stone
This 23 foot high Pictish stone has been dated to the 9th century and in addition to Celtic decoration is inscribed on all faces with horsemen, women captives, headless bodies and even a broch. It is thought to commemorate a battle and predates Sueno a Danish Prince who fought the Scots here about 1008. Sadly it is now encased in glass to protect it from further weathering. Whilst doubtless necessary it has destroyed the character of the site. However, luckily I have slides of the stone prior to its entombment.
