A great example of a modern reconstruction of a site, done well. The main feature, the slab cover, is fantastic and once sat down in front of it, studying it's decorated surface, was a real bind to leave. Opening the wooden door and descending into the cairn is quite an experience, too! IronMan Posted by IronMan

The Stone Tapes


Video (quite dark at times) of a visit to Nether Largie North, showing the sliding door on the roof and some detail of the stone lid inside the humid chamber.
