Aberlemno Sculptured Stones, Aerlemno, Angus
Magnificent range of Pictish sculptured stones - depicting a hunting scene, battle scene between an army of men with long hair and an army of men wearing helmets. The function of the stones the Picts erected is uncertain but the nearby fort of Finavon (1.5km to the east) may have been the residence of a Pictish chieftain.
Can only be seen Apr to end of Sept as they are covered up in winter .
Aberlemno Southern Radside Stone - This stone is highly eroded but may bear the traces of a curving symbol.
Aberlemno Northern Roadside Stone - This stone bears several Pictish symbols; a serpent, a double disc and z-rod and a mirror and comb. Judging from prehistoric cup marks on its back, seems to have been an earlier monument reused by the Picts.
Also: Aberlemno Roadside Cross Slab / Churchyard Cross Slab ( considered one of the finest surviving pieces of Pictish carving )
