Sueno's Stone

  • Findhorn Road, Forres, Moray IV36 3WX



Admire the tallest and most complex piece of early medieval sculpture in Scotland.

Sueno’s Stone is a gigantic Pictish cross-slab measuring 7m tall. Its carvings are ornate and unique. We see here a rare and complex narrative depiction of a battle, and a wholly unique scene interpreted as a royal inauguration.

The stone would have once overlooked the marshy floodplains of the rivers Mosse and Findhorn. Unusually, it’s still associated with the place it was first erected, though we know little of its wider context.

Opening times

Sueno's Stone is free to visit and open year-round.
