Small Shandwick Cross

$37.00 USD

Taken from a cross-slab dating from the 8th century, the Shandwick Stone is part of a triad of stones found along the eastern coast of Ross-shire within a few miles of each other. With the Nigg and Hilton of Cadboll Stones, they are said to be monuments to three Norse brothers whose bodies were washed up on the shore after a great storm. According to the folktale, they were try to rescue their sister from the evil earl of Ross at Balnagown Castle.

 

Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
