Brandsbut Pictish Ogham Stone Inverurie

The Brandsbutt stone was originaly found in pieces with the fragments fitted into a drystone dyke. The stone now restored thanks to Barratt Homes (who rescued it from obscurety) sits on the Barratt Estate. A sign can be seen from the A96 at Inverurie showing its whereabouts. The Brandsbutt Stone carved between 500 and 900 AD shows a V Rod and Crescent, Above a Z Rod and Serpant symbles, which are promently incised. To the Left of this is a long but incomplete inscription in Ogram, an ancient alphabet. The Ogram reads "Irataddoarens" which has been given the possible link whith Eddarron, a possible rendering of St Ethernanus, a local saint.
