This is a fine court tomb with a long, high cairn, a semicircular court on the south-east, defined by impressive stones, and probably a two-chambered gallery (only one chamber is exposed). At the back of the cairn is an unusual subsidiary gallery across its whole width, with an antechamber to the north-east and jambs defining two chambers. This feature was excavated in 1939–1940 and further work on the tomb was done in 1977. The gallery was badly disturbed but some cremated bone was found as well as several different types of pottery and flints, indicating both Neolithic and Bronze Age activity.
