"Carnagat" (the cat's cairn) is a small, relatively well-preserved tomb with much of its cairn still surviving.
It is about 20 metres long, and composed of two double-chambered galleries and forecourts.

This photograph was taken in the 1970s.




The picture below, taken in 2002, shows the impressive Northern forecourt.
Note the matching notched or 'shouldered' orthostats, reminiscent of a portal-stone at Legananny, county Down.
The tomb, although now fenced off, has become considerably more overgrown since the taking of the previous picture.

Another picture, taken in 2002, showing the excellent explanatory panel erected to the N of the Northern forecourt.
