The gallery is 7 metres long, segmented by jambs (one of which has an uncompleted cup-mark) into 3 chambers.
Much of the cairn (which is nearly 20 metres long) survives to a height of 1.8 metres.
The picture below shows the passage in winter - looking South to the entrance.

Looking along the gallery towards the court.


In the foreground of the picture below (taken in summer and also looking S along the gallery)
is one of the lateral chambers.


Both lateral chambers at the North end.

 

The Heritage Service explanatory panel was still intact in 2005.
It shows a plan of the tomb...


...and an (overhead!) "artist's impression" of what it was probably like just after it was built.
