The Battle Stone is a Class II Pictish symbol stone that stands in the graveyard of Mortlach Parish Church, Dufftown, Moray. It is decorated on the front with two fish monsters and a Celtic cross with small round hollows in the angles of the arms and spirals up the shaft. Below the cross is an unidentified “beast”, possibly a lion. On the reverse side is an incised eagle/bird of prey, a serpent and a bull’s head. At the bottom is a mounted horseman with hound. The stone is thought to date from the 7th - 9th Centuries AD. Traditionally it is thought to commemorate a battle, but this is unsubstantiated. The stone is free to visit.
