Approaching the wedge tomb from the south.


The Kilcrimple Wedge Tomb is very similar to the Derrycallan North Wedge Tomb, but it's bigger and more visible, without too much vegetation around. It's in a private field, but the access is easy. It's about 80 metres southwest from the field gate. The tomb has a large and regular capstone, one stone on the northwest side and two stones on the southeast side.
Just like the Derrycallan tomb, this is aligned to the southwest (250°) and its capstone has a very rugged surface.
It's 1.58 metres tall, 3.50 metres long and 2 metres wide.
