A litter of large natural slabs has been identified as a ruined and collapsed megalithic tomb chamber.
Although an intact megalithic chamber is depicted in a sketch reproduced in Daniels such sketches are not considered reliable - this example may have been intended as a reconstruction.
Without further investigation this monument can only be regarded as a suggestive natural feature.
