Sacred Stones, Sacred Places (St Andrew Press, ISBN 0-7152-0652-4, £19.95) is a book by Marianna Lines, with photographs by Paul Turner.

‘Stones can tell many stories, and contain a great history which pervades every crack and cranny of their makeup. While every stone in the world is important in its own particular role, certain stones have been made sacred by the messages written down on them, etched into their surface by the hands of ancient peoples, and by their association with the spiritual history of Scotland.’

A lovingly documented exploration of some very remarkable monuments to Scotland’s intriguing heritage. This book complements photographic images with beautiful and intricate impressions of stone-art.
