Details Pictish Symbol stone, Class I, dug up in Kintore churchyard but which may have originally come from the motte at Castle Hill (NJ71NE0025). It is 1.2m tall and has been erected on a new base near gateway of churchyard. The stone is sculptured on both faces. One side shows a crescent and V-rod over a beast, while the other side has a fish above a cauldron. Possibly shows two phases, as one side is better incised than other.
