Cross Slab found on Flotta
In the churchyard on the island of Flotta, there were formerly the remains of an old chapel. When it was being demolished a rectangular slab of grey sandstone was found, which bore a highly ornamented Celtic cross carved on one side. Two vertical grooves on the back of the stone suggested that this might have formed one side of a sarcophagus. The stone measures just over 5 feet by 5 inches long and just over 2 feet 8 inches in width. It is now in the National Museum of Scotland. The local war memorial now stands on the site.
