Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

These are a collection of five carved Pictish stones dating from the 7th, 8th and possible 9th centuries found in and around the village of Aberlemno/Obar Leamhnach. Four of the stones are located in Aberlemno which is southwest from Brechin off the B9134 in Angus. Three of the stones are by the B9134 in the recesses of a dry stone wall and known as stones 1, 3 and 5. Aberlemno 2 is located about three hundred yards south of the road side stones in Kirkyard and includes the carving of a Celtic Cross on it's west face. The fifth stone Aberlemno 4 is currently located and displayed at the McManus Art Gallery and Museum in Dundee/Dun De. The four stones at Aberlemno are covered in the winter months to protect from frost damage.
