Taking the A497 Pwllheli to Nefyn road take the left hand turn onto the B4415 road (signed towards Botwnnog)
At Bodgadle the road forks off to the right. Take this windy little lane. Take the first right hand turn which will lead you through some woodland.
The road winds to the left passed some farm houses on the right.
The stone is in a field on the right. There is a gate on both sides of the road so easy to pull in.

When I visited the farmer had not long planted crop and new shoots had just come through, so I decided not to go into the field. But took pics from the gate.

What disappointed me more was that the farmer was using the stone for a scarecrow. He has tied the scarecrow to the stone.
I wasn't impressed!

Following along this track will bring you out onto the same road you turned off.

This eight foot tall monolith is easily visible from the small lane there's even a gate right next to it , but the field was full of sheep and their lambs so I was very reticent to enter willy nilly, and with a nearby house and its barking dog I settled for a zoom in picture.
But for once the kids came up trumps and scared all the sheep to the other end of the field and the dog quietened down so I walked quickly to the stone touched it took a decent photo and skipped back to the car.
Tra la la la laaa.....

On a windy road near the village of Dinas, a 5 foot tall standing stone stands in the middle of a field. In the same field appears to be some form of hut circle. Posted by rdavymed
