CLEGGAN COURT TOMB
This fine court tomb is located on the north banks of Cleggan Bay, which make for a beautiful setting.
The tomb consists of a small gallery, 2 orthostats on the south west side, a small ante-chamber and a main chamber covered by a roof-stone. The tomb is supported by two side-stones and two door jambs. The back-stone is now sunken below the surrounding soil.
There is some evidence of a cairn but most seems to have been washed away by the sea.
This splendiforous tomb is well worth a visit. It surpasses any of the other ancient relics in the area with its distinctive antiquated charm. Run, don’t walk to bask in the flinty goodness of this wonderous monument.
