Pipers Stone
Pipers Stone
We came across this stone on the way down from Coronation Cairn on the Cromdale Hills. According to history during the Battle of Haughs of Cromdale in 1689 a single piper Hamish, though badly wounded, managed to drag himself atop a sizeable boulder and continue to play song after song spurring on his men until he finally fell and died. The stone on which he played was later, appropriately named "The Pipers Stone".
