    This solution doesn't show where to find every standing stone, but tells where to find the first and easiest ones.

    After you leave the first dungeon from the main quest with the guard (Hodvar), follow him. He will walk outside down a path, after a while he will stand still at three stones. You cannot miss them. As soon as you leave the dungeon and complete the Unbound quest, it's marked north-west on your map from your location. It is the only mark you see north-west on your radar. Use your activate button on one of them and you will unlock the achievement. It doesn't matter which one you choose, you can always change the chosen stone later on in the game.

    The stones represent star signs, at those three there is a warrior, wizard and thief. They give you bonuses by leveling faster some of your skills, or have special effects. There are more of these stones in Skyrim, but these are the easiest and earliest ones you can find and you can only have one stone active at a time. If you somehow missed this stone when you came out of the dungeon, go to riverwood, and walk back up the mountain, just follow the road, it's not far off the road, you can see the big lake from the stone platform.

    You can see the stones on the map too if you've discovered them, the picture of a standing stones looks like the pillar you see on the achievement picture. If you haven't discovered the standing stone, it will be blacked out.
    Also, some of the red crosses on your (real life) map you get with the game, mark these stones, but not all, some mark dungeons or word walls.
    In-game some books can be found that mark Standing stones on your map if you read them.

    The Chuck ChuckUm, what if you chose the other path in the beginning and left the first dungeon with your fellow prisoner and not the guard? The dungeon you come out of is in a different location...

    Shad0wdarFollow the path back up the mountain, it's harder to see it then but you will see it on your radar.

    You will encounter your first three standing stones shortly after escaping Helgen.
    These stones offer a blessing, of which you can only have one at any given time.

    Below is a list with all stones, and the general direction you need to head to find them. I could go into detail about the location, but it's alot easier to head into the direction described and keep an eye on your compass for the following icon at the top of your screen. The icon you're looking for is a pillar of some sort... a standing stone. :-p

    - Thief Stone
    - Mage Stone
    - Warrior Stone

    These 3 are found after escaping helgen, hard to miss.

    - Lord Stone
    To the southwest of Dawnstar.

    - Ritual Stone
    To the east of Whiterun.

    - Atronach Stone
    Between Riften and Windhelm, in the marshlands. Might be tricky to find through pointers, use the method described above if you can't find it.

    - Shadow Stone
    To the south of Riften.

    -Lover Stone
    To the east of Markarth.

    - Apprentice Stone
    To the south of Solitude.

    - Steed Stone
    To the northwest of Solitude... will require some climbing.

    - Lady Stone
    To the west of Riverwood.

    -Tower Stone
    Walk a straight line from Winterhold to Dawnstar, it's just about in the middle.

    -Serpent Stone
    To the east of Winterhold.
