Muntermellon Dane's Cove

Tucked between two rocky ridges overlooking Dunfanaghy, with a fine view across to Errigal and Muckish mountains, about 400 m NW of a by-road leading towards Croaghamaddy Hill at the point where it leaves the water’s edge and climbs the hill, this tomb retains a good deal of its cairn. Between the two tall portal-stones (2.5 metres high) is a doorstone which closes the chamber. The sides and back are formed by single slabs – one over 3 metres long. One of two roofstones – a table-like horizontal slab rests on 2 corbels (one displaced) on each sidestone. The other, slightly larger roofstone has been displaced and now leans against the W portal-stone.
