The court tomb seen from the south.


Next to a modern graveyard there's this huge court tomb that is well signposted from the main road. It is inside a square fenced field about 25 metres each side. It had four burial chambers separated by jambs. The roofstones and the court stones are gone.
It's 12 metres long, 2 metres wide and the taller stone measures just 1 metre. The two stones that once were the jambs of the main entrance are 85 centimetres tall and 90 centimetres tall, the left-hand side one and the right-hand side one respectively. Both sides are made by 10 stones, another big stone closes the gallery at the rear.
The gallery made by the four chambers is aligned east-northeast (60°).
