Edit: added a working link.

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.

This may be a bug, but you are not required to find 13 unique standing stones. Simply revisiting the ones you've already found will add to the counter towards unlocking this achievement, this may or may not be limited to only 1 re-visit per stone, or it doesn't work at all for others.

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.
