Best approached from the S.W but me and Day Vole came from the S.E and got soaked from the knees down. Not the tallest of stones, but it was very white and was noticeable from quite a distance from the south so was maybe a marker stone through the mountains. Probably not really worth the trip unless your hardcore and in the vacinity due to long walk out through squelchy marshy ground. postman Posted by postman

Taken as gospel from Coflein.

The sight of an alleged stone circle, but the many boulders strewn across the hillside may just be a fortuitous arrangement.
The standing stone is located on a south-west facing slope on the crest of the hill, positioned on a slight terrace 3m across cut into the hillside. The stone is local pale quartzite and measures 1.3m high, 0.9m wide and 0.6m thick, at the stones summit it tapers to a point.
