The rear side of the court tomb.


This is a court tomb with a wild and rugged beauty. The ground where it stands on surely hides many more tombs like this one, because it is almost impossible to walk on the grass without having one's foot sunk into a hidden hollow among the stones concealed under the grass and the moss.
The tomb is 1.70 metres tall and wide, and it's 1.50 metres long. The corridor in front of it is about 3 metres long. The tomb is aligned south-southwest (200°).
If you walk 8 or 10 metres south of this tomb you'll find another smaller tomb beneath the level of the ground, probably a kist, about 1.50 metres wide, 2 metres long and 60 centimetres deep.
