This chambered grave is a mess. It's just a pile of stones on the boundary between two fields.


Tattykeel chambered cairn is locally known as The Giant's Grave, but although it has a certain fame over here, it's been treated like a useless and annoying pile of stones from a field clearing. All the stones are lined along the boundary between two fields.
The owner of the field told me that the monument has always had this sorry state, nobody has ever disturbed the stones and rarely someone comes and visits it. He was so glad that we were there on that day and kept us talking for a while.
The monument is 12 metres long, its width is about 1.40 metres, and it's aligned north-south (0°-180°).
