From Comrie, take the B827 south until you see the un-numbered road running east towards Muthill. Take this, and after passing the site of the Dunruchan Stone Row, pass through Craggan and then look for the track to Dalchirla Farm on the south side of the road. Park here and ask permission at the farm - this is readily granted.

The solitary stone is surrounded by a pile of field clearance boulders, which were not part of the original siting - none are earth-fast. The pair in the adjacent field are slightly mis-matched size-wise! The smaller of the two has a couple of cup-marks low down on the side facing the larger stone (faintly visible in the bottom photograph).
