Picts - Angus Pictish Kingdom Symbol Stones

Angus is the best place in Scotland to discover the Picts. These fascinating and cultured people (300 AD - 900 AD) erected strange symbol stones throughout the area.

The earliest stones feature animals, fish, serpents and abstract geometric designs, later stones are carved with intricate crosses. Collections at St Vigeans, by Arbroath and at Meigle, bring together some of the finest stones, while the Pictavia Centre in Brechin explores what is known of the kingdom of the Picts.
