Caithness stone memorial

Hand-carved memorial with Celtic cross and Ogham script

My third memorial stone for the kirkyard at Cawdor carved from riven-faced Caithness slab. This one has a large knotwork Celtic cross and ogham script running up one side. The ogham transliterates as “our spirit lives on”

These crosses were carved previously but had become very worn. My task was to remove old treatment, plane the old carvings off, hand-carve new inscriptions and add new details.
