Details Four Class I Pictish symbol stones stand in Inverurie Cemetery (NJ72SE0211), formerly built into the old churchyard walls and possibly removed from the foundations of the old church for the purpose of building the churchyard wall. One is a tall pillar bearing incised symbols of a crescent and V-rod, a mirror case symbol, serpent and Z-rod and a double disc and Z-rod. The second is a truncated slab with a disc and rectangle and the arch or horseshoe symbol. The third stone bears an incised double disc and Z-rod. The fourth stone is the only occurrence of a single incised horse on a Pictish stone. There were also two small cross-marked stones, thought to be early grave markers, which were removed and taken into the care of Aberdeenshire Council Museum Service over 30 years ago. The two stones were moved to the Museum HQ in Mintlaw in May 2012 (for access numbers see related info). The larger stone was found in the burial place of the Johnstons of Brandsbutt.
