Fragment of a slab from St Ninian’s Cave. The sculptor has made a cross in low relief by cutting back the background to leave a rough, pocked surface which contrasts with the smooth surfaces of the cross. This technique, along with the general shape of the cross and the encircled central depression, are similar to 5, and suggest that this stone may also date from before 800AD. The stones from St Ninian’s Cave had all been moved from their original positions before discovery. The cave was probably an early medieval chapel. On display in Whithorn Priory Museum, Dumfries and Galloway.
