The Ardchattan Cross is 6.5 feet tall and dates from the 10th century. Ardchattan took its name from Chattan, one of the companions of St. Columba (who brought Christianity to Scotland), the prefix, ard signifying promontory. According to local tradition there was a chapel on this spot in the earlies ages of Scottish Christianity, centuries before the monks of Vallis Caulium erected there priory and church, about 1230. The Ardchattan Cross is found with in the private burial ground of the Campbells of Lochnell in the churchyard of the Priory behind Archattan House, located on the north shore of the Loch Etive, 7 miles east of Oban, Strathclyde, Scotland. The knotwork designs symbolize continuity and convey the interconnectedness of all things. Spirals are symbols of continuous creation and the ongoing search for spiritual fulfillment.
