Not the easiest of stones to get to, approach from the north following the rough track south through the forest. Hopefully you'll get to the track that only has foerst on your right hand side and heather to your left, park by a wooden stake by the side of the road, possibly an old footpath sign. The stone is hiding amongst the heather and it's very good at it too. Barely two feet tall it's no wonder no-one had been there till me. From the stone look west through a corridor in the trees and straddling the fence is a cairn, not wide or tall but nice to sit upon above all the heather which has fairly taken over the whole area. The cairn was really easy to find but the stone took ages, round and round I went scratching through trees, sweat pouring from me, I probably passed it three or four times.
But that's all par for the course sometimes, golf is a good walk spoiled but stone hunting is a treasure at the end of an adventure.
