Two symbol stones and a third, rune-inscribed stone, now at Knockando Parish Church (NJ14SE 1, NJ 1867 4288), are said to have been brought from the old burial ground at Pulvrenan, prior to 1856. Neither symbol stone is in good condition. They bear:

1. A stone bearing a rayed disc symbol, and below, two crescents and V-rods.

2. A stone bearing a serpent and a mirror-and-comb. Between these is a very weathered symbol, probably the flower.
