Invereen Pictish Stone
Inverness, Highland
Pictish Symbol Stone Class I Canmore

This Class I stone, found in 1932 whilst ploughing, is now in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

It is aproximately 1 metre tall and carved with a crescent and V-rod above a double disc and Z-rod. Neither symbol is particularly ornate, but they are beautifully executed.

A third symbol - it has been suggested that it may be a penanular broach - is carved in an area of the stone that has been subsequently damaged.
