Very interesting.
I tried to get into Glamis Parish Church, late summer, and despite saying it was open during daylight hours - guess what?......

Apparently the church also has;

UKNIWM Ref: 5674

I 'think' the cross is a representation of the carved relief on the circa 8th c. Pictish cross-slab located in the front garden of the old manse opposite the church.
