A free-standing cross of 15th century date, it stands at the junction of three medieval streets between the Abbey and the Nunnery. It is carved with dense interlacing and entwined foliage with a depiction of Christ crucified on the W face. The foot of the E face bears the inscribed figure of a soldier on horseback and an inscription which is no longer legible. It is likely that this recorded the name of Maclean of Duart or Lochbuie.

The cross stands over 3m high.
