A short distance west from Taversoe Tuick Chambered Cairn and also sign posted with a small parking area.

Another easy site to access.
Access into the chamber is through a metal sliding hatch and down a small metal ladder.

The remaining walls are about 1 metre high and there are 10 large stones standing.
The chamber is well lit but it lacks the atmosphere and quality of Taversoe Tuick.

There is however a large glass window which allows you to see how the retaining walls were constructed which is pretty good.

As with Taversoe, the views are wonderful.

This is one of those places that you feel you must visit but it is not one of the best of the Rousay sites. At least it is still here and deserves to be seen.
