Altdrumman

Portal Tomb

The Portal tomb at Altdrumman is unusual in that it faces a small rocky outcrop, as seen in the image above. The capstone of this megalith is over 1 metre thick and the supporting stones seem relatively small compared to it. The local name for the tomb is "The Cloghogle". The nearby wedge tomb and court tomb at Loughmacrory can be seen from this field.
