The portal tomb seen from the north.


This nice monument is on a private land. While we were visiting the tomb, a car passed by and the driver waived at us. I presume he was the landowner.
Though it may look like a portal tomb, I had assurance from a a highly reliable source that this is a court tomb, well, what remains of a court tomb. The court has long disappeared, what we see today is just the entrance to the burial chamber or chambers.
The tomb is 3 metres long, 1 metre wide and 1.75 metres tall.
The entrance faces north-northwest (340°).
