From a long distance, from the north.


This is another of those monuments that we tried to see in the past, but we failed a few times due to the bad weather. It is in a private field and it's necessary to ask for the permission of the owner or a person who knows him well to walk to it.
The tomb is totally overgrown and it is impossible to understand if it's a kist or a portal tomb.
What is sure is that it's rather big.

What I was able to see is that whatever it is, it's 6.85 metres long on the east-west axis, and 6.5 metres on the north-south axis.
The only visible stones of this monument are on the southwest side, and something that might belong to the monument is still visible on the north side.

I wonder if, had we visited 11 years ago, when we first attempted it, the vegetation would have been less.
