Hilton Of Cadboll Stone

The intricately carved Pictish stone, created from local sandstone in AD800 was removed from its original site and placed in a local chapel in the 17th century. From there it was taken to Invergordon Castle gardens and then, in the 1920s, after the castle was sold, it was presented to the British Museum in London – which caused such a furore it was returned to Scotland and can now be seen in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. In 1998 sculptor Barry Grove was commissioned to make a replica, which now marks the original spot on the outskirts of the village.
