The entrance of the portal tomb seen from the east.


This portal tomb is nice and small, and it's very easy to reach and visit because it's on the side of a small road. There's also a convenient car park right behind it. The tomb is 2.25 metres tall, 1.30 metres wide at the ground level, and about 3 metres long. The entrance faces perfectly northeast.

UPDATE: June 5th, 2011 - We were in the area and we wanted to see the sad conditions of this portal tomb. We had read that some kind of accident occurred to the monument and that it was under repair, but we weren't prepared to see what we saw... An awful sight!
