St Bride’s Chapel 1, Loch Lubnaig, Perthshire, cross-slab fragment

Measurements: H

Stone type: sandstone

Place of discovery: NN 5850 0981

Present location: set in a concrete block and built into the north wall of the burial ground, above a modern inscription recording its discovery.

Evidence for discovery: found in 1932 when the foundations of the chapel were uncovered.

Present condition: broken but the carving is clear.


This triangular fragment has one intact edge, which suggests that it came from a relatively small slab. It is incised with a broad shallow groove with the left arm and central area of a cross, of which the left arm has a barred terminal.

Date: sixth to eighth century.

References: Morris 1934.
