The Migvie cupmarked boulder lies just a few metres south of Glack Farmhouse, on the verge of the track leading up to the farm, and right beside the drystane dyke to the east of the track.

The boulder appears to consist of a red sandstone and, according to Carnmore, has on its upper surface some 42 cupmarks about 10 millimetres deep and averaging 40 millimetres in diameter.

Although Migvie is signposted as 1½ miles from Logie Coldstone, it is a very small and scattered community: there is no 'Migvie' sign welcoming you there and it's easy to bypass Migvie altogether. The best guide is to keep a look out for the churchyard on the north of the road. When you see it you've arrived. Park by the churchyard and walk 75 metres east along the main road to Glack Farm.
