Fodor's Review

In the center of tiny Dirleton sits the impressive looking, 12th-century Dirleton Castle, surrounded by a high outer wall. It's now a ruin but with a relatively complete outer facade, and the grounds behind the walls feature a 17th-century bowling green, set in the shade of yew trees and surrounded by a herbaceous flower border that blazes with color in high summer. The castle was occupied in 1298 by King Edward I of England as part of his campaign for the continued subjugation of the unruly Scots.
