  • If there was a guide illustrating history and functions, would not much from watching this mound in ceremonial use dating back to 4,000 years ago, despite the harmonic arrangement of 12 standing stones around and the visible entry hole.

  • We were the only ones there when we visited. It was very peaceful and also sad as this was the resting place of someone and the top stone had been removed in 1952 but never replaced.

  • Not as great as the hype is. Just a good place to see. Nothing more.

  • Lovely free historic monument with parking close by.
