https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/SponsorAPictishStone. A previously unknown carved Pictish stone has been found at an early Christian church site in the Dingwall area of the Scottish Highlands. The rare find, described by experts as being of “national importance”, was thought to have to been carved around 1200 years ago. The stone, which was reused as a grave marker in the 1790s, currently measures 1.5 by 0.6 by 0.2 metres. However it is broken and experts believe it may have originally stood up to 2.4 metres high. The stone is decorated with a number of Pictish designs including several mythical beasts, oxen, an animal headed warrior with sword and shield, and a double disc and z rod symbol. Details of the carvings on the reverse side include a large ornate Christian cross and two massive beasts. This will make it one of only about 50 complete or near complete Pictish cross-slabs known in the world, and the first to be discovered on the Scottish mainland for many years.
