Toggle location map

The Brandsbutt Stone is a Class I Pictish stone, restored after being broken up by explosives. It is whinstone, incised with symbols of a crescent & V-rod above a serpent & Z-rod.

On the left side of the stone is Ogham script reading “IRATADDOARENS”, translated as “Eddarrnon”, which is possibly a rendering of St Ethernanus, a local saint.
