    This is a nice stop off but it is all about hr views of the bay- this is a beautiful and quiet spot for picnic and to overlook the tidal bay beside the C of I church.  more »

    Lovely spot, both the sea views and the tomb itself. Plus, there's parking! I very much enjoyed visiting this spot.  more »

    Atmospheric location on the Wild Atlantic Way, steeped in sacred ritual and honoured through the ages . The wedge tomb at Altar is part of our history, culture and tradition. It is easily accessible with the convenience of a small car park adjacent. Children should be accompanied by adults for safety as the rocky shoreline is elevated and exposed.

    Nice view of the region. The altar stones are also interesting and have a interesting story behind it. Stones are smaller than i expected though.
