This standing stone is situated about 1 mile to the south-west of the circle at the Backhill Of Drachlaw. Leave the B9024 at the Shielburn signpost and follow the road to it's conclusion at the Newton Of Fortrie. The stone, which stands at almost 6 feet in height 4 feet in width, is in a field 50 meters to the south of the farm.
