Ballyvennaght, county Antrim

D 200 367 - Sheet 5

Nearest village: Cushendun

A pair of portal-tombs lie about 20 metres apart, mostly below the level of the surrounding moorland..
The westernmost tomb is a fine example, with a large capstone about 3 metres across, and a sill-stone.
One side-stone is missing. The portal stones are 1.5 metres high.
Between this tomb and the second, which has collapsed under the weight of its capstone,
traces of the cairn which contained them both can still be seen.


A closer view of "Cloughananca".

The yellow stick is one metre high.


A frontal view some 28 years later, looking towards the standing-stone Cloch na h-Uaighe,
and on the horizon above and to the left, Carnanmore with its passage-tomb on top.

A view from the side.
