Murthly Pictish Stone

Dunkeld, Perthshire
Pictish Symbol Stone Class III
Also known as Gellyburn

This Class III stone, found in 1886 whilst ploughing, is now in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

Carved on one side in a single panel, this very unusual stone shows

  • at left: two creatures, one half-man half-bird and the other half-man half-dog, fighting with swords and shields;
  • at centre: two sea creatures facing each other;
  • at right: a man fleeing from a giant boar above a third sea creature.
