This stone is situated some 200m NW of Upper Fernoch at the SE end of Loch Dun Calltuinn; it aligned NE-SW and has straight sides and a rounded top (Campbell and Sandeman 1964). It measures 1.3m in girth at the base and has originally been about 2.5m in height, but it now leans considerably to the SE. There are several small natural depressions in the surface of the stone.
