This stone has a Latin inscription which reads ‘HIC IACET. IONNES. FILIUS. PHILIPPI CISSORIS which can be translated as ‘here lies John, son of Phillip Cissoris’ (or Taylor). A foliated cross head is carved in relief with a rosette in the centre. There is a large shield just below the cross head which covers the stem of the cross and extends onto the sloping sides of the stone. The shield has three small shields carved in relief on its surface, which have been identified as the arms of the Hay family. On the right hand side of the stone, running behind the shield, is a sword carved in relief. In common with the other swords depicted on this collection of stones, it has a five-lobed pommel.
