The portal tomb among hundreds of rocks. This is the view while approaching from the east.


Reaching this portal tomb is a goat's task. The ground is rocky and steep and we walked for 500 metres after leaving the car.
It was hard to tell the tomb from the other hundreds of rocks that cover the hill. From the east everything looks very mixed up. The capstone seems split in two halves, one of them is still in situ, the other half has collapsed on the west side, leaning against one of the portal stones. These stones are about 2 metres tall, the main group of stones is 1.80 metres wide and about 4 metres long.
