At the time of writing, Coflein has no record for this site, but it's marked on the 1891 Ordnance Survey map as "Maen Llwyd". A later version of the same map available through Coflein Mapping (undated) has the site marked as "Maen Llwyd (site of)".

Maen Llwyd stood just below the gentle ridge that runs between Afon Towy and Afon Gwendraetheast. It seems likely that the locations of this stone and it's neighbour Is-Coed bear some relation with the water courses that run past them.
