The east face of the North Cross.


The North Cross is 17 metres north from the South Cross in the St. Columba's church graveyard.
Nothing more than a sorry shaft remains today. Like the South Cross it's aligned east-west (100°-280°). On the east face it carries carved scenes from the Old Testament, on the west faces the scenes are from the New Testament. On the sides it's decorated with spirals, knots and other geometric patterns.
It's 2.19 metres tall, 75 centimetres wide and 43 centimetres thick.
The stone base where it stands on is 97 centimetres high, 1.69 metres wide and 1.43 metres deep.
