Stone boulder or beach pebble from St Ninian’s Cave, incised with a cross with barred terminals and a long stem. It may have been carved as a religious offering. A similar cross is incised on 48, and two crosses of this style are cut into the rock wall. 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.
