The ruins of the portal tomb seen from the east. The capstone has slipped and now the front edge rests on the ground. In the adjacent field to the west the Portal Tomb 4 and Portal Tomb 5 are visible.


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 3 in the alignment. A small cairn covered in grass is visible. It is possible to make out the outline of the kerb. The capstone has collapsed to a side towards northeast, a chamber is visible underneath it. The tallest point of the tomb is an edge of the capstone at 82 centimetres from the ground.
