Head north from Torphins on the B993, St. Marnans Road, taking the first left signposted Learney. At the end of this road the standing stone is in the field in front. A walk of about 100 meters, slightly uphill. Parking can be found beside the Mill Of Learney. This granite stone stands at around 5 feet tall and was probably part of a circle. Punters at the nearby pub still say that it was a druids meeting place.
