Look in wonder at a Pictish masterpiece that has been placed inside one of Scotland’s oldest complete parish churches. The Dupplin Cross is an ornate freestanding cross 2.5m high that names a Pictish king and depicts warriors, animals and a harp player. It stands in the 12th-century tower of a church whose legendary founder slew a dragon on this spot.
