Skyrim Standing Stones Location Guide

By   /   4 years ago


There are total 13 standing stones which can be found scattered throughout Skyrim. You can earn two achievements, first by finding a standing stone and getting its blessing, and second by finding all 13 standing stones.

To get the Standing Stone blessing, just walk up to the stone, activate it, and you will carry over its effect until you overwrite it with the blessing of a different Standing Stone. Below you will find the locations of all these Standing Stones in Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. Visiting them will net you these two achievements.

For more help on Skyrim, read our Walkthrough, Skills and Perk Tree, and Dragon Shouts guide.
