Scope and Content The four Inveravon Class I Incised Pictish Symbol stones, dating from perhaps the 6th-7th century AD, were set against the south wall of Inveravon Church. The stones are Statutory Monuments. There were problems with the stones being exposed to the freeze thaw cycle, and the mounting of the stones was also problematic causing damp ingress to the Church itself. After consultations with Historic Scotland, Tomintoul Glenllivit & Inveravon Church developed proposals o conserve the Pictish Stones and relocate them in the 1876 North Porch. Groves-Raines Architects were appointed to obtain the necessary consents, tender the specialist stone conservation and other works. The works were completed in December 2011.
