Carved Pictish Stone,Eassie, Scotland

This afternoon, I collected tour guests from St. Andrews and then proceed as follows:

  • Across the Firth of Tay, through Dundee to Eassie in the county of Angus.
  • At Eassie ( a farming hamlet) we stopped to visit the ruined structure which was Eassie Old Parish Church inside which is the famous Eassie Sculptured Stone which dates from the Pictish era, maybe 1200 years ago. The Picts were the indigenous people of Scotland who occupied the country before the Scots arrived. The stone is typical of the Pictish era and comprises a cross-slab containing many symbolic carvings.
