World's first Celtic High Cross reassembled in Selkirk

The world's first Celtic High Cross has left the island of Iona for the first time, to be restored and reassembled in Selkirk.

The St Oran Cross dates back to the 8th century and was split into five pieces for restoration purposes.

It is now being reassembled in the Borders town before being returned to Iona for the celebration of the 1450th anniversary of St Columba's arrival on the island.
