Sueno’‘s Stone is a Picto-Scottish standing stone . It is the largest such stone in the British Isles. It stands over 6.5 metres (about 21 feet) high.

Local legend says this was the crossroads where Macbeth originally met the three witches. In the legend, they were eventually imprisoned inside the stone—should the stone be broken they would be released. However this tale can date no further back than Shakespeare’‘s play Macbeth.

Sueno’‘s Stone has typical Pictish style interwoven vine symbols on the edge panels. It is carved from Old Red Sandstone which is prevalent in the Laigh o’ Moray but has suffered considerable weathering in places. The western face has a carved Celtic cross.
