The portal tomb is in a sad state.


In the tiny village of Malin More there's a wonderful alignment of portal tombs and a pair of standing stones over a quite straight line 175 metres long, on a roughly east to west axis.
I started with the large portal tomb at the east end of the alignment and I have numbered the monuments from 1 to 9. It has been speculated that monuments from 1 to 6 might have been joined and covered by a giant straight cairn.

This is the portal tomb number 2 in the alignment. What remains of it is a scattered set of small stones around the pillar that once bore the Fógra sign, two portal stones to the north-northeast (20°) and the capstone which has fallen forward and is partially framed into the dry stone boundary wall of the field.
It's impossible to take physical measurements of this tomb because of its conditions. The taller portal stone is 1.38 metres tall, the tallest point of the monument is 1.85 metres from the ground and it once was the rear end of the capstone.
