  • Encased in glass is one of the tallest Pictish Stones being preserved in Scotland. Four panels depict a battle. There is an information board telling you all the known history of the stone. Location: ...  more »
  • Amazing stone from the 700-800's. Worth a quick 15 minute stop to see. Hidden in a residential area but pretty easy to find.  more »
  • In Great Britain are many stones found, but a giant like this in the Scottish Forres probably belongs to one of the largest. One has to suspect that one of the three different battles that were fought in the period ninth to tenth century could be depicted. If you are interested in the history can find everything back on Wikipedia. This I want to say, the name Sueno comes from a Viking leader who in one of these battles fought against the Scots. This stone is the effort to visit? Yes but I would not drive for kilometers around, but who near Brodie Castle of the coastal village of Findhorn or visit one of the many distilleries can make a small detour to this history-laden with early medieval stone. To protect has a glass case built around, who knows he not ever moved to a museum, so do but.

  • If you are interested in Pictish remains then you are in the right area. Sueno's stone is quite impressive for it's age and well worth a look. Also nearby and much less well known is the Gorham stone which is also worth going to see.
  • Ancient carved stone protected by glass case. Largest of its kind in Scotland. Not well sign posted, possibly due to roadworks
  • Unusual glass caused monument in Forres. Well worth having a look st this monument
  • Amazing stone and even more amazing history.....a must visit.
  • Definitely worth a look if you're in the area
