The National Committee on Carved Stones in Scotland exists
To promote understanding and appreciation of Scottish carved stones of all periods

To raise awareness of the threats to them

To encourage a common approach to their recording, publication and preservation

Formed in 1993, the NCCSS is an independent body composed predominantly of representatives from Scottish national agencies. We provide a forum for the exchange of information among members and their organizations. We aim to enable a better understanding of the issues affecting carved stones and to facilitate collective efforts to address them. Drawing on our wide range of interests and expertise we aim to identify and spread good practice, to influence institutional policy, and, where possible, to achieve solutions for individual stones or groups stones that are at risk or are in other ways a cause of concern.

The website is currently being updated and will be fully functional very shortly. Apologies for any inconvenience caused
