This charming little dolmen is remarkable for the free-standing orthostat,
1.8 metres high, which is beside one of the portal-stones (on the right
in the photograph). This suggests a derivation from or mingling with
the court-tomb tradition. The picturesque capstone tilts at the usual
angle, and behind it is a well-defined square chamber.
This is a winter view.
A summer view (taken some 20 years later) is below.
