Piper's Stone

Natural Rock Feature



Another large boulder to the east of the kirk is called the "Piper's Stane," from its having been, as story avers, the spot where bagpipers waited for marriage parties on their return from church, when their services were required to convoy them home, and to play at "penny bridals."
From v2 of Andrew Jervices's 'Epitaphs and inscriptions from burial grounds and old buildings in the North East of Scotland' (1879).
