From Walls head west past the school and when you come to the fork in the road go left.
You will eventually see the stone on your right next to a ruined farm house.

The stone is approximately 2 metres high and the top half is covered in ‘hairy’ lichen.

Canmore states:
‘An irregular shaped standing stone. Quadrangular at base, with a girth of 10inch and rising to a height of 7ft 2inch. Its position is somewhat unusual for a prehistoric monument of this kind and it may have been erected as a boundary marker or for some similar purpose’.
