This font is from the churchyard of St Maelrubha at Borline on Skye in the Inner Hebrides. It dates from the 15th century. It is thought that the stone from which it is carved may have come from Argyll.

The font has figure subjects and other designs in high relief on its exterior. The figures include depictions of the Crucifixion, the Virgin and Child, and St Michael slaying the dragon. Panels on either side of the Crucifixion have carved interlace.
