Well worth the serpentine route through the back lanes. A very imposing dolmen in a good setting. Well managed site good paths from the road. Poss wheelchair passable. Plenty of parking in the adjacent layby and good interpretation.

A nice place to go for a little gander, with it being something that is truly best seen in person to get the scale of chamber. All the while you are surrounded with a beautiful view of the mountains, and fields of sheep. If you bring a dog keep it on the lead since there are some bits of the fence that they may be able to squeeze through.

If you like old dull historical places in the middle of nowhere, then it's good. The view is very relaxing. The down side is that it's not much to see so you are pretty much done in a very few minutes

Ancient, mystical, spiritual place. Off the beaten track but not hard to find. Lovely & quiet & not over-developed. The sheep seemed unimpressed!

If you like big rocks on top of each other in field then it's brilliant. Don't expect visitor centres or cafes though. Parking is a layby.

Similar to Rick, we saw the sign on the main road and followed it. My daughter is interested in things ancient and this monument is ancient so off we went. The roads narrowed rapidly to single track with some quite sharp blind turns. We may have felt it more because we were on a motorcycle especially when we met a lorry coming the other way who had no intention of slowing down. The monument is well signposted and route to it is well kept. No car park, just a layby to pull in to. Fascinating to look at and try to figure out after '000s of years how it is still standing. Good views of surrounding countryside too. We were fortunate in that we had a glorious day. My daughter was impressed so it was worth the detour. Maybe I will choose a bigger vehicle next time!

Saw the sign on the road and followed it. Didn't know what to expect, but loved it. Fabulous ancient monument standing in a stunning landscape. Worth the minor detour.
