Labbydermot (Dermot's Bed) is a well-preserved and picturesque wedge-tomb
whose main chamber is covered by a capstone just under 3 metres long.
The antechamber/portico is unroofed and made with high slabs, the largest being 1.5 metres high.
There are two closing-slabs with deliberate 'soul-hole' gaps on both sides.


A view from inside.
