The east side of the portal tomb.


In a remote part of the countryside there's this huge portal tomb. The conditions aren't great, most of the monument is missing, but it's still a fantastic site. It's just 6 metres from the road, in a pasture.
The two portal stones are very tall, the right one has a height of 2.70 metres, the tomb is 2.20 metres wide and 3.90 metres long.
The monument is perfectly aligned north-south, with the entrance facing north.
All around it just sheep and silence. The wind is pretty strong and this should be the reason for the presence of the numerous windmill generators on the surrounding hills.
