One of the most important and celebrated collections of Pictish carved stones is now re-displayed to reveal the detail of these internationally important carvings at St Vigeans Sculptured Stones.
Located in a museum in the village of St Vigean’s only street, St Vigeans Sculptured Stones is 38 carved stones which once stood up in the old church and are amongst the last of Pictish art, making them internationally important.
Current understanding of the stones, and the important Pictish site at St Vigeans, is interpreted for a wide audience. The displays include hands-on interactives, audio and tactile elements and a touch screen database through which the detail of the stones can be explored.
