Stone, Standingstone, East Linton.
This fine and sturdy specimen can be found in the
stackyard/orchard at Standingstone farm to the south of Traprain
Law near East Linton. At 2.80m high and averaging 0.64m on each
side this stone is substantial and solid. Another standing
stone, known as The Loth Stone, can be seen towards Traprain
Law, set along the field boundary.
From East Linton take a minor road for Traprain, continue south
for Sunnyside, go straight on then right and through Luggate.
Standingstone Farm is the next set of buildings on the road.
Ask at the house for permission to park in the farm yard and for
Another standing stone in the "East Lothian" group
that surrounds Traprain Law. This is a good, solid stone
situated in the orchard of Standing stone Farm, to the south
west of East Linton. Access and parking is easy but please call
into the house and ask permission first. Looking at the image
now, I wonder if the south east face of the stone is in
alignment with 015 The Loth Stone towards Traprain law, or
rather its original position? Perhaps even the hill itself. A
task for another visit to the area!
