Get a rare insight to Pictish life on this exceptionally well-preserved cross slab dating to about AD 600.

The red sandstone Dunfallandy Stone is one of the finest surviving Pictish cross-slabs. Carved into the stone are several human figures, along with animals and beasts that may form religious allegory.

The stone is probably in its original location, though may have been moved slightly at some point to re-erect it.
