The Maiden Stone is a 3m-tall cross-slab of pinkish granite, dating to sometime after AD 700. It’s a sculptural delight, bearing both characteristic Pictish symbols and what may be a biblical scene.
Plenty of local folklore exists around the Maiden Stone. One tale has it that the stone was once a maiden, who lost a bet with the Devil. As she fled, the Devil turned her to stone. Another says it’s a memorial to a young woman killed as a result of a dispute between two families.
