Woodhill House, Westburn Road, Aberdeen, AB16 5GB

The Rhynie Man is a Class I Pictish Stone incised with a standing figure of a warrior, ploughed up on Barflat Farm near Rhynie in 1978.

The carving shows a man wearing a knee-length, sleeved, belted tunic and pointed shoes. He carries a battle axe or pole axe over his shoulder.

Pictish stones depicting figures are rare; this example probably dates to the 6th or 7th century AD. It is now housed in Aberdeenshire Council HQ, Aberdeen.
