An excellently preserved Christian monument from the end of the Pictish period, carved in the 9th century.
The Kinord Cross is a beautifully carved ornate slab, located on the shores of Loch Kinord, which dates to the end of the Pictish era. Despite the passing of over 1000 years the carving of interlaced pattern remains crisp.
Several walks through the Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve take in the Kinord Cross. The most direct is the Little Ord trail, marked by a yellow Pictish carving symbol, which leads through very pleasant woodland between Loch Kinord and Loch Davan to the cross. Or you can take a full circular walk, which takes in ancient hut circles too. Free maps are available in the Muir of Dinnet Visitor Centre.
