end are 2m and 1.8m in height, while the single support at the north is 1.2m in height.
The long capstone is 3m in length and 0.6m in depth. A single slab lying beside the
capstone maybe a structural feature, but may also be one of a number of boulders
forming the basal level of a cairn which can be traced under and around the dolmen.
