Kintore Symbol Stone
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The style of carving is different on the two faces, which may mean it was carved by two different people, possibly at different times. The stone is known amongst archaeologists as Kintore 1, and stands just inside the gates to the kirkyard.
It probably dates to the early 7th century (Pictish symbol stones are notoriously hard to date). There are further symbol stones at Dyce, four miles away, and Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle is 6 miles distant.
