Pictish Stones

Administrator (admin) on 06/12/2022

A project to consider the current state of the Pictish stones and their future display.

We have recently commissioned a study by consultants of the Pictish stones present around the village. This has been in conjunction with Aberdeen University and Aberdeenshire Council.

The final report has been received which considers the present state of the stones and how they would be best displayed for the benefit of residents and visitors. It includes suggestions for priority works and some indication of budget costing. The report can be downloaded here .

Some of the priority work has now been completed. The stones situated near to the cemetery are in a shelter. This has now been repaired with a new roof to continue to protect the stones. Also an application has been made to Historic Environment Scotland for a Scheduled Monument Consent to enable a protective fence to be erected around the Craw Stane. Enquiries are also proceeding towards appointing a stone conservator to report on the condition of all the stones in the village.
