Ballintur Court Tomb
Map Reference: J225152 (3225, 3152)
Ballintur court tomb is aligned approximately NW-SE with the court at the SE end. The west side of the gallery is well represented but the east side is very fragmentary especially at the front. The rear of the gallery is easily visible but it is now full of small stones. The dividing stones are not visible but there may have been 2 or 3 chambers. The gallery is about 8m long and the court is about 3m deep and 6m wide. Part of the facade may be seen. There is a great deal of cairn material present. Some of it may not be original.
