The tomb is quite a mess. The court, in the foreground, is incomplete. The chamber at the rear is a little more than a group of scattered stones.


This court tomb is in derelict conditions. The structure is very unclear and little remains of what it was.
What I saw is that the tomb is about 13 metres long and about 10 metres wide. The tomb itself is quite destroyed, the court still has some upright stones and is aligned to northwest (300°).
Among all other stones one stands out for its shape and colour. It's much darker than the other and it may look like an open hand.
It started raining heavily while we were visiting the site.
