History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The impressive capstone measures 2.7m by 2.1m (roughly 8 feet by 6.5 feet). The collapsed cairn is estimated at 21m by 12m (roughly 65 feet by 38 feet), and is on an east-west axis.
The area is rich in ancient sites, with the Neolithic burial chamber of Dyffryn Ardudwy close by, and another at Cors-y-Gedol.
From Dyffryn Ardudwy head north on the A496, then right on a minor road toward Caerffynnon. Turn right at a crossroads into a lane towards Bron y Foel. You will have to open and close farm gates as you proceed. Just before the farm turn right and the tomb is set into the stone wall by the roadside.
