MENMUIR CHURCH (Menmuir parish) N K Atkinson, W G Watson
Class III Sculptured Stone Fragment
NO 534 643 On a visit to Menmuir Church, on 22 May 1986 to view the other 5 sculptured stones, we found a small stone in the Session Room, which bore worn interlace on one face. The other face has been broken off. The stone, of local Old Red Sandstone, measures 0.27rn high, 0.20m wide and 0.08m thick and we placed it with the other Christian stones upstairs in the church. On notifying the Session Clerk, Mr G L C Lumsden, he informed us that it had been there for a long time and had been found in the graveyard. The stone is likely to be part of a cross slab of a similar late 9th-10th century date of the other three cross slabs at Menmuir.
