I parked in the entrance to Lindsaig farm, and jumped the gate opposite, over the field down and up a deep wide stream gully and you can see the stone lurking behind the field wall .
As I approached the gate to get the other side of the wall I scared a deer and watched keenly as it bounded away turning to see if I was following. The stone is very Maen Llia like as in diamond shaped and about 8ft tall two barrows can be seen just 50 yds away to the N.W and N.E. A good looking stone with trees half obscuring the view of the Loch.
