Truly amazing to see! The Church stone is amazing in the cemetery. The three by the road are also fascinating! Well worth the detour if on your way to Stonehaven Castle.

These are three standing stones on one side of the road and another standing in front of the town church, perhaps a half mile away. They are Pictish and some information is provided via a small sign. There is a small parking area available. The...More

The stones are located on the main road through the village with one located in the churchyard surrounded by a small fence. The stones along the road can be reached from a gravel car park, be cautious as the road can actually be quite busy....More

The roadside and graveyard stones are three of the most iconic Pictish Stones. Highly recommended for any Pictish enthusiast. The stones are covered over in the winter time by wooden boxes to protect them from the elements, so visit during the summer months to avoid...More

These Pictish stones in Aberlemno are immediately adjacent to the Brechin to Forfar road, with another in the local churchyard. If travelling any distance to view them, a visit to these stones should be combined with visits to Pictavia, the Pictish Heritage Centre at the...More
