John Mylne, monogrammed IM and dated 1586, moved to present site 1874 when given steps and small octagonal base with shafted angles. Restored tall octagonal shaft with Corinthianesque capital. Modern unicorn in resin bronze by Scott Sutherland.

Statement of Interest

The cross was originally sited on a short octagonal tower in High Street at the junction with Overgait and removed in 1777 to west door of St Mary's. The capital was given to Dundee Museum when the shaft and stone unicorn was again moved in 1874. Only a part of the shaft is original. Resited further west, 1993.
