There are four stones with Pictish carvings in the village of Aberlemno, in Scotland variously dating between about AD 500 and 800. Three stand on a roadside, while one stands in the village churchyard. They comprise:
- a leaning, reused prehistoric standing stone
- an unshaped boulder bearing traces of two symbols
- a magnificent cross a sandstone cross-slab in the churchyard
The stones show a range of carvings, from characteristic Pictish symbols to overtly Christian iconography.
The Celtic Cross photograph depicts the celtic spirals in the very centre of the actual cross from which the pattern is derived.
