Overview

Admire this rare free-standing Pictish cross, still in its original location. 

The Dogton Stone, dating to about AD 900, is an unusual monument. Free-standing crosses were uncommon in Pictland , and today – with the exception of the Dupplin Cross  – only fragments survive. 

ThDogton cross is decorated on all sides with largely abstract ornamentation, but an armed horseman above two beasts can be seen. The stone is best appreciated when lighting conditions highlight the surviving carvings. As the Dogton Stone is located within a field which is farmed, access may not always be possible.
