Stone, The Green, Dirleton.
The Piper's Stone can be seen on Dirleton village green just to
the west of Dirleton Castle and measures 0.40 long x 0.25m wide
and 0.35m high. The stone is set in a circle of granite cobbles
and appears to have been broken in the past as early records
state the height to have been 0.75m
The village of Dirleton is reached from the A198 road to North
Berwick. The stone is located on the south part of the village
green, to the west of Dirleton Castle.
Parking is available in a small car park to the west of Dirleton
Although known locally as the Pipers Stone, there does
not seem to be any factual evidence behind this naming.
The Pipers Stone, due to it's rather small nature is easily
missed and is far from being a grand standing stone. From its
location on the village green of Dirleton it seems likely that
what we see today is all that remains of the market cross that
once stood on the site.
