HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Aberlemno Sculptured Stones
There are four stones; the largest stands in the churchyard and is best described as a cross-slab decorated with Pictish symbols and interlaced pattern carving. Three other stones, dating from the 7th to the 9th century, stand by the roadside.
About 9 miles away is St Orland's Stone, another well-known sculptured stone. Much closer is Restenneth Priory, an Augustinian priory founded by David I, while about 3 miles away is the Finavon Doocot, a 16th-century dovecote thought to be the largest in Scotland.
