Sitting on limestone cragland, this view of a "Dermot and Grania's Bed" now fits into the landscape as unobtrusively as a Moroccan Berber house.
Apart from its now absent cairn-stones reaching up to the tilted capstone of the dolmen, this picture would have looked much the same four thousand years ago.
Trees are now threatening it, however.
