It's one standing stone nicely preserved in a tasteful glass case. It's not Alton Towers (thank goodness) but it is a beauty which will please history buffs reading up on Pictish culture and hopefully inspire amateurs like myself to discover more of our rich history.

This is a memorable monument but I don't recommend it to tourists. It has a lot of significance, but it's not a touristy spot.

A great little place to visit - an enormous (over 20 feet high) Pictish standing stone set behind glass that is surely unique. Accompanied by informative boards commentating on history and legend. Easy to park and view at the edge of the local housing area.

Beautiful old pre history carved stone. Amazing example of Pictish carved stone. Just a pity that our ancestors history has all but been wiped out.

Stop and view this unique monument. It's easy to park and view. You can walk round it and can be accessed in certain parts via a wheelchair. Look closely at the carvings in this attraction and wonder at the height of it. The reason for...More

We stopped by this stone since we were in the area to see the Findhorn Ecovillage. It wasn’t too hard to find. It’s kind of in a subdivision, not too far from the highway. There was a small car park and just one or two...More
