As the portal tomb appears upon approaching it from the north.


This portal tomb is huge and its capstone is possibly as big as the one at the Proleek portal tomb. Unlike this latter tomb, though, the overall size of the monument is smaller and the conditions aren't that perfect. The capstone has slipped from the rear stone and now it rests almost vertically. The two portal stones leave nearly no gap between them. The south portal stone is 1.33 metres tall, the other one is 1.20 metres tall. Both lean to the south by 14°. The entrance faces east (80°).
The total height of the tomb is 2.02 metres, the length is 2.75 metres, the width is 1.85 metres.
It's in a field on the border with the adjacent field.
