This Class I symbol stone was found in or just before 1800 in the north-east corner of the foundations of the old parish church of Tyrie. The exact location of the old church is unclear but it was probably within the kirkyard of the new church which was built in 1800.
Initially the stone was placed within the porch of the new church but it was removed in the 1890s and subsequently built into an interior wall of the church, adjacent to the vestry. The stone is known as the Raven Stone due to a bird symbol however it is more likely that this actually represents an eagle, standing on top of a notched rectangle and Z-rod.
