Notes: This fragment of a Pictish symbol stone was found during the 1920s in the course of excavations on a burial site very close to the place where the Ackergill 1 stone was found (see entry for Reference Number SSC/4). The stone is incised with a 'rectangle' symbol, and below this there is a short section of curved line indicating the original presence of a second symbol. This is the second incidence of the 'rectangle' symbol at this site.
