This massive stone is a Pictish grave cover. It would have laid flat to cover the length of a grave and likely had an upright piece of stone or timber marked with a cross set into its top when first put in place. The carved figures show an overlord and two followers on horseback. Behind them a figure holds entwined serpents. The decoration on the other side includes interlace and boss designs and carved beasts.
