|Description ||This rather battered Class II symbol stone bears the remnants of elaborately detailed carving on all four faces. It was relocated here circa 1957 from a position on the riverbank 100 yards SSW, to protect it from inundation. Once broken in three pieces, it is now held together by the stone pillars on either side (which unfortunately conceal some interlacing) and the bottom is out of sight below ground.|
This side has a cross at the top, many interlaced spirals and what looks like two people embracing at the bottom. The soft sandstone is so badly worn that much of the design has disappeared.
See the RCAHMS page for illustrations of the stone in its full glory -http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/search_item/index.php?service=RCAHMS&id=15498
