Scope and Content South face of Inveraray Cross, Inveraray, Argyll and Bute This late medieval cross may originally have stood at the medieval church of Kilmalieu, but was later erected as the market cross of Old Inveraray. Its base was dismantled about 1775 and it was finally re-erected on its present site in 1839. The cross-head originally had a figure of the Crucified Saviour, which has been cut out. A figure has also been removed from the cusped niche at the top of the shaft. The shaft is carved with plant-scrolls and a hunting scene. An inscription on the north side reads: 'This is the cross of noble men, namely Duncanus MacCowan, Patricius, his son, and Mael-Moire, son of Patricius, who caused this cross to be made'. The cross is a product of the Iona school of stone carving. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
