An unusual and interesting variation on the general Orkney-Cromarty plan.

The chamber here is at right angles to the passage - they are usually on the same axis. There is also clear evidence of a facade running to the SW.

Nice site with good open views and some tall stones (up to 1.5m).

Access. . Easy but we had to climb the gate into the field. Ask at Braedown. Room to park opposite their drive.
