The monument consists of a sculptured stone, now built into the wall of Arndilly House, which was taken out of the wall of the church that formerly occupied the site.

The stone is about 0.8m square and is inscribed with the following three symbols: mirror, Z-rod, and a chariot with two ponies. The stone was moved again about 1960, and is now set 1.5m from the ground on a south-west-facing wall of the house, to the west of the south entrance porch.

The subject to be scheduled includes only the stone itself.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because it represents a well-preserved example of a symbol stone, which, on account of its symbols and of its known provenance from a former ecclesiastical site, contributes to an understanding of the material culture, art, society and religion of late Iron Age and early medieval Scotland.
