After going thru Kemnay, via the Gushet Neuk, on the B993 head south on the minor road to Craigearn. Keep going past the sign to Castle Fraser until Woodend farm. Here there are two tracks. Take the first, an estate road, which leads to a man made lake. Go round the lake until the north west corner. Climb over the fence and head in a north westerly direction. Thru the more grown trees straight to a clearing. The stone is in the middle of the clearing still standing impressively.

Sadly near the lake there was a Larsen trap, recently discussed on the forum, with two crows flapping madly inside. Fairly soon they somehow were freed.

Now go to Castle Fraser and the RSC.

The same height as the nearby Langstane o' Craigearn (3.4m), this one is more imposing but suffers from being surrounded by trees.

Access. On the map this looks like it sits in a clear area between two lines of plantation. It doesn't. That clear area has been planted with trees now over 2m high. The stone itself sits in a clearing. Park at NJ712132, up the track NE then over two fences. I'd recommend having a GPS as there are no landmarks to follow.
