Tyrie Raven Stone
The church and war memorial at Tyrie
The Raven Stone is a carved Pictish symbol stone, discovered in the foundations of the church at Kirkhill, Tyrie. The stone is carved with the figure of an eagle, below which is a rectangle and traditional Z-rod symbol. The rectangle has a notch on the short side and indentations in the long side. It has been suggested that it might represent a chariot drawn by a pair of horses, seen from above.
The stone is located in the church, just to the south of the main A98 road. About 5 miles away is the burial mound of Mensie Cairn, while the historic tower house of Cairnbulg Castle is 8 miles distant.
