Stone, Kirklandhill, Tyninghame.
This impressive standing stone can be seen from the main A1
Trunk road just after the junction for Tyninghame and is
situated in a cultivated field (potatoes at the time of visit)
and is one of the largest standing stones in the area, reaching
From the A1 south of Dunbar head west and take the A198 for
Tyninghame. The stone can be easily seen from the road junction.
For a closer look, request permission for access at Kirklandhill
farm where parking may also be sought.
This is one of the tallest stones in East Lothian and can easily
be seen from the A1 trunk road, in fact, you need not even get
out of the car. To get a closer look, and I would recommend you
do, I asked for permission to park at the farm and then walked
between the rows of potatoes to the stone. Keep an eye on the
soil as you walk along the rows, you never know what you might
find. The stone may also be a summer and winter solstice marker
with the peak of North Berwick Law to the west.
