The magnificent portal tomb and the rocky outcrop.


This was an amazing find. We followed the map, but we didn't know that we were going to see such a beauty!
It's a huge capstone supported by three tiny upright stones. Two more stones make an enclosed area below the capstone. This is 1 metre thick, and has grooves and small holes all over its surface, it is absolutely amazing!
The entrance of the portal tomb faces the east-northeast (75°).
The tomb is 3.70 metres long, 2.20 metres wide and 2 metres tall.
A rocky outcrop rises to the north of the tomb and other boulders are scattered around.
