Dunteige Wedge Tomb

Map Reference: D324080 (3324, 4080)

This is a typical wedge tomb measuring about 10m long. It is set within an oval cairn aligned NW-SE. It is made up of two chambers forming a gallery running more or less the total length of the cairn. The ante chamber is formed by two sidestones and a tall septal stone. Behind this is the long burial chamber. It has five sidestones on each side. One roof lintel lies fallen and overlies the septal stone. The outer walling is well preserved at the north side where ten substantial boulders lie almost contiguously. On the south side only six stones are visible.
