At Crathie go onto the South Deeside, the B976, past the entance to Balmoral Castle and head back east until Mains Of Abergeldie, just after the first minor road heading south. I parked here and walked on to track opposite the farm. There is a crossroads of tracks, head west and keep going west onto the grass track, the stone is slightly to the south up a small hill.

To the north is Abergeldie Castle and the River Dee. This well shaped stone must have had good views which are now blocked by the trees. Still a pretty place tho.
