Going south from on the B979, leaving the B9077 near Maryculter, take the second minor road west. Go past Altries and the hamlet of Airyhillock pulling in at the first track heading south. A nice and not very steep walk comes next.
The stone stands with a dry stane dyke built each side of it. It stands at 11/2 meters tall being aligned to Bennachie to the north west. The stone known as the wife stands slightly to the west and is shorter.
Whilst visiting this stone I was lucky enough to meet a local lady walking her dog. She came from nearby Pepperhillock and told me two local myths.
This stone was used a marker to lead to another standing stone down on the banks of the River Dee. The stone pointed to a place were the Dee could be crossed. Unfortunately the stone was taken down years ago.
The standing stone at Standingstones farm is known locally as the husband. Slightly to the west is smaller stone known as the wife. It is said that as long as they stand together then the local residents will enjoy many happy days especially if they are married.
I wondered why these stones were fenced in, not likely they'd escape, but they do seem to have moved. Near Standing Stones farm I looked for a stone circle/kerb cairn but was told the stones were piled up near the standing stone.
They are situated just slightly to west of the standing stone, on the other side of a brand new barbed wire fence.
