Watten Standing Stone is in a field on the E edge of Watten on the N side of the A882 between Thurso and Wick. It is an irregular pointed stone measuring c. 1.7 x 0.9 x0.7 m according to Canmore ID 8789.
Canmore also states that c. 50 years prior to 1871 there were an additional two standing stones close to the survivor. I found a semi-buried recumbent stone c. 6 feet NW of the standing stone.
