Reference (1995)

NO 534 643 The five Early Christian cross slabs found at this site were all removed following the closure of the church. They have been put on display in the Meffan Institute, Forfar.

The fragment discovered in 1987 was re-examined and does not bear worn interlace. The pitted surface most closely resembles the 'fire-making stone' from Carlungie Souterrain.

N Atkinson 1995.
