The whole area of the northeast cairn seen from the north, while approaching.


From the N16 we took the road to Tullyskeherny, and after about 2 km we parked the car. There's a convenient wooden ladder stile to climb over the fence of this land and from here we walked south for 500 metres until we saw this amazing view over the valley and the group of tombs perfectly nested in the landscape.
The whole thing is very confusing and it's close to impossible to tell the tombs and the cairns from the natural rocks of the landscape.
They are two different court tombs with most of the cairn material still present. Every court tomb has a number of subsidiary chambers that face different directions.
