Inverurie Symbol Stones
Inverurie Symbol Stones
There are four early Pictish symbol stones preserved in the cemetery at Inverurie. The tallest of the stones has incised carvings depicting a V-rod and crescent, Z-rod, another Z-rod with a double disc, and a rectangle serpent.
A second stone has an arch symbol with a disc and rectangle, which have also been interpreted as a man holding a sun disc above his head, or a mirror case. The third stone has a Z-rod with double disc, while the fourth stone has only a symbol of a horse. There is another symbol stone at Kintore, 3 miles away, and the Brandsbutt stone is 3 miles distant.
