SUENO’S STONE

Sueno's Stone is a  23 feet (7 metre) high Pictish sandstone block, intricately carved with unique imagery, dating from the mid 9th or early 10th century. The carvings include an elaborate battle scene, which may be a record of a real event. Sueno's Stone is encased in glass and located near a residential estate off the A96, possibly in its original position overlooking the floodplain of the Mosset Burn and River Findhorn.
