Friday 8 June 2012: Sueno's Stone
At 21ft high, Sueno's Stone is Scotland's tallest surviving cross-slab. It is thought to date from the 9th or 10th Century, which makes the beautiful, intricate carving all the more remarkable.
One side depicts a ring-headed cross, and the other shows a battle scene. These figures are from the thin edge, about 8ft off the ground.
The stone is housed in a glass
box enclosure, to protect it from the weather. If you happen to be passing Forres it's worth a look.
Last day in Moray for a while, headed back down the A9 this evening, which was pretty grim, roadworks, Rockness-ers, rain, frustration, accidents, road closures - a bad day to be travelling.
