Details Two sculptured stones. One stone is roughly pillar shaped of blue-grey gneiss, Pictish Class I with notched double disc and a serpent with Z-rod (the serpent has scales). The other stone, the 'Newton Stone', is of blue gneiss and is around 2.03m high. It has 6 horizontal lines of characters inscribedat the top which are thought to be a debased Roman script, the meaning of which is unknown. To the left of this, down the side of the stone, runs an ogam inscription. It contains a personal name (Ethernan) and additional material that is either incomplete or not wholly legible. An incised 'kidney-bean' shape was observed on the lower side of this stone, identified as a possible Pictish mirror symbol.
