Looking at the poor remains of the tomb from the east.


This court tomb isn't marked on the OSNI Map and we found it by chance on the way back from Dun Ruadh cairn because we took the wrong direction to get back to our car.
Only 6 stones remains, 4 of them are on the north side and the other 2 on the south side of what once was the burial gallery. The court was on the northeast (70°) side of the monument, looking at the ring cairn which is about 130 metres far. The two stones at the east ends of the two rows were probably the stones at the entrance of the gallery and are 1 metre apart. What remains of the court tomb forms a structure that is 4 metres long and 2.70 metres wide.
