(Inverurie no. 4). The Class I symbol stone Inverurie no.4 is the northernmost, and is separated from the others by the Innes of Ardtannes headstone. An unshaped block of pale pink granite with a pointed head, it measures 0.82m in breadth by 0.31m in thickness at ground level and stands 1.23m in height. On the lower half of its W face it bears the incised figure of a horse. This is depicted in motion, with left front and right rear legs raised. The mane is shown as an internal line parallel to the curve of the neck, and by three erect curved, spine-like hairs behind the ear, and by two in front. The eye is circular, with a central dot. Except for the rear hoof which has scaled away, the figure is intact.
