This portal tomb stands on pasture on a broad plateau. It has an oval capstone, 4m by 2.65m and 70cm thick. The tomb faces SW but the portal-stones are missing. The capstone rests on a doorstone and a cushion stone on top of the backstone. There are several side stones. Investigations in the late 1930s revealed cremated bone, flint and charcoal in the chamber.
