The kerb of the tomb number 3 seen from the south-southeast.


This tomb is in better condition than the Tomb 1 because the kerb ring is neater and inside there's a clearer clue of a burial. A flat boulder must be the capstone of the passage tomb.
The diameter of this kerb is about 15 metres.
During the excavations in 1979 and 1994 over 30 kilos of cremated human bones were recovered, though many other bones were removed 100 years before.
