Scope and Content Symbol stone from Sandness, Shetland This symbol stone was once built into the wall at Sandness Church. However, its current location is unknown. This is a drawing of the stone which appeared in John Stuart's 1856 publication 'The Sculptured Stones of Scotland'. At the top was a rectangle. Below this was an arch. The lowest symbol is a mirror. The measurements may be inaccurate, as they appear to be slightly to small and out of preparation. They are the only set available however. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
