Approaching from the west-southwest.


It hasn't been easy to reach this tomb. It's atop a low hill, but no handy accesses are available. I approached it via a gate at Wattle Bridge.
In some old records this place was described as a continuous circle of stones, or kerb, around a central cairn. It seems that this monument was destroyed around 1712.
When I visited the place I counted 35 large stones on a diameter of about 36 metres on the east-west axis. Stinging nettles and brambles hide most of the stones. A low mound at the centre of this circular arrangement marks the spot of the lost cairn under which some burials were found.
From this tomb it is possible to see Castle Saunderson about 1 mile to the west-southwest, in county Monaghan.
