Cateran Ecomuseum

Meigle Sculptured Stone Museum

One of the most important collections of early medieval sculpture in Western Europe.

Displayed in the old schoolhouse at Meigle, this magnificent collection of carved stones dates from the late 700s to the late 900s.

The stones were all found in Meigle, mostly in the churchyard or built into the church, but some were found elsewhere in the village.

They are all that survives of a centre of Pictish wealth and patronage and they demonstrate both the artistic vigour of Pictish society and the skill of is stone carvers.
