 Aberlemno Cross
The 8th century cross in the Aberlemno kirk yard 
is one of the finest surviving examples of Pictish 
sculpture and is thought to commemorate the
important Battle of Nechtansmere fought in 685
A.D.  This side depicts interlaced sea horses, 
birds and beasts as the backdrop for an 
intricately interlaced cross with three Celtic
knots in the shaft and a center of
seven triple spirals.

Aberlemno Pict Stone

This cross is 5 feet high, and there are cup
and ring marks on the backside but no
celtic cross. This piece was most likely
carved before Christianity came to the
isles.
