From Bridgend of Lintrathen take the un-numbered road towards Kirkton of Kingoldrum. Pass Meikle Kenny farm on the right, and park where possible off the road just before the wood to your right. Cross the fence and climb up beside the wood until you reach the trig point. The single standing stone is very close by. There is a recumbent stone about 40 yards to the SW on the ridge, I'm not sure if it was part of the original 'A' setting. Heavily scored by a plough at some point. The two small groups of stones are over the fence and into the wood, the first being about 40 yards in, the second a further 40 yards away. All the stones lie on a SW-NE axis.
