Overview

A trio of tombs

Despite their proximity to one another, this trio of Neolithic (New Stone Age) tombs were raised in distinctly different periods. The earliest chamber at the site’s western end is a simple box-like structure surrounded by a cairn of boulders. The chamber in the middle (both in terms of its age and location) has now collapsed, with only a few of its stones still standing. At the site’s eastern side, the third and most recent tomb remains almost intact, with its original capstones and two impressive portal stones at its entrance.

Excavations suggest that the site was in use for as many as 1,500 years, demonstrating how significant these monuments must have been to our early ancestors.
