The Edderton Stone

The Edderton Stone is a Pictish standing stone located in Edderton’s Old Church cementary. Although it is located in the churchyard it is not thought to be a burial place. 

The following description is taken from the Second Statistical Account of 1840:

“There is another sculptured stone in the church-yard, with a warrior on horseback in the lower compartment, and a large cross engraved above it; on the other side there are a number of curious circles and hieroglyphics, arranged in an indescribable manner.”
