This stone slab is a re-used standing stone and measures 1.9m tall by around 0.5m wide, standing on top of a cairn. It has been set in concrete to stop it toppling. The stone is aligned ENE-WSW and has stunning views north over Strathmore.
Carved on the stone are several Pictish symbols – at the top is an animal which may be a wolf, bear or even a badger, below which is a double-disc and Z-rod, and at the bottom a mirror and comb symbol.
It’s tempting to look at how close this stone is to the county border between Angus and Perthshire and read some significance into that.
