This Class I symbol stone is carved with a seahorse and was found buried in a garden at The Ness.
Found when the garden was being dug in 1986, the stone is yellow sandstone measuring around 0.59m by 0.31m and varying in thickness between 0.05m and 0.08m. On one side is the carving of a seahorse, reaching a length of 0.38m, while the reverse is rough suggesting that stone was split for later re-use.
The stone is now housed within the Orkney Museum at Tankerness House in Kirkwall.
