Seen from the east. The sheep fence is in the background.


To reach this portal tomb you have to find the St. Davog's primary school on the B72. Right opposite the school there's a lane signposted as a cul-de-sac. After a 700 metres driving, the lane becomes an unpaved track. Walk for another 400 metres, the portal tomb is on your right.
The land is a complete marsh and it's near to impossible to walk on that mud and manure. Too close to the portal tomb there is a concrete sheep pen.
The tomb is about 1.60 metres tall, 3 metres wide and 2 metres long. The whole thing is a complete mess, it's almost completely collapsed and all the mud and the manure surely detract beauty and ambience from the place. Ten metres south of the tomb there is a standing stone which once was part of another tomb or part of the cairn of this portal tomb.
