Leac an Scáil ("The Spirit Stone") is hidden in a hollow and surrounded by bushes.
Its portal-stones are 3.6 metres high, framing a fine door-stone 2.7 metres tall.
The dramatically-tilted capstone projects beyond the portal and reaches a height of 4.5 metres.
Its lower end rests on a smaller, horizontal stone which partly covers the chamber. Traces of cairn survive round about.
