To find this, follow the directions for the Kilspindie Stone Row. I revisited this today armed with a bit more information. There are two sites here, the row/alignment, and the remains of a four poster. Both of these contain cup marks.

According to Canmore, the four poster measures less than 3m across, and contains 2 recumbent boulders on the SW and NW, and two smaller earth-fast boulders, both broken. The NW stone has 3 cup marks on the upper surface. And that's almost exactly what is here. It lies at the SW end of the stone row, and the view up to the NE is quite spectacular.
