There are four stones with Pictish carvings in the village of Aberlemno, dating between about AD 500 and 800. Three stand on a roadside, while one stands in the village churchyard.
The stones show a range of characteristic Pictish symbols. The stone in the churchyard is an upright cross slab made of red sandstone and is over 2 metres tall. This is one of few Pictish stones which depict a battle scene and has been interpreted as representing the Battle of Dunnichen in 685AD.
