The wedge tomb is half buried under the mound.


In the same plot of land as the Glanfahan Huts there's this small and half hidden wedge tomb poking out of an earth bank. The tomb is partially exposed on the south side. It's about 3 metres long, 2 metres wide and 1 metre tall, with the entrance facing south-southwest (190°).
The presence of this tomb not far from the clocháns might suggest that the site could have been in use through a long period of time.
