This is a stone age burial site which has been very well preserved. You would not notice that it is there until you are very close. Lle hynod o ddiddorol.

The burial chamber was near the location where we were staying and well worth the visit. We visited on a rainy day which gave it an eerie feel. It's not hard to get to and forth a few minutes of time to see.

Bit of a walk to get to this, but worth a look. Probably 30 minutes nosey around. Surrounded by a metal fence enclosure, and was missing signs when we visited, which was a shame.
