St Orland's Stone, AngusYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
St Orland’s Stone, also known as Cossans Stone, is a rare example of a Pictish cross-slab still standing in its original location. It most likely dates from around the eighth- to early-ninth century AD.
It’s unique in depicting a Pictish boat – the only known representation of a boat in early medieval sculpture in Scotland.
The stone stands on a low terrace overlooking what used to be wet ground west of Forfar in Angus, Scotland. It was broken in two at some point, but its beauty and craftsmanship remain obvious.
