Again Broadford is probably your closest town. This tomb is in a long forestry track. I wouldn't recommend it in an ordinary car. Again I visited this as part of the May 2011 megameet.

The tomb itself is in good condition and there appears to be remains of the mound surrounding the tomb also. It is approx 3.5m long by 1.5m wide.
