Din Dryfol Chambered Tomb
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The monument initially extended from 47-62 metres and contained a single large chamber. This was later altered to create four chambers, closed off from each other by internal stone divisions.
Unfortunately, some of the tomb was destroyed during construction on a nearby road. Excavations revealed remains of cremations, plus pottery remnants.
The Din Dryfol tomb is set on a narrow ledge on the steep flank of Din Dryfol hill and is accessed via rough footpaths (good footwear is advisable).
