Fowlis Wester Sculptured Stone

Perth & Kinross | Fowlis Wester | Pictish stone | ★★

[Fowlis Wester Sculptured Stone replica - Pictish symbols]

The 3 metre-high stone in Fowlis Wester is one of Scotland's tallest symbol stones, with a cross on one side and with several Pictish symbols on the other. A Z-rod, double disc and several people and animals are included in the symbols; the carvings probably date to the 8th or 9th centuries. Actually, the stone in the village square is a replica placed in the stone's original location, while the original can be found in the local parish church. Apparently the church is open during daylight hours - not so on our visit...
