TINNAKILLA CIST
CO-ORDINATES
52 32' 46.355"N...9 13' 20.907"W
Its great to come across an intact cist like this now and again. It has a huge capstone
held up off the ground by four large rectangular boulders leaving a wide low chamber
below. It is aligned on a SW-NE axis similar to wedge tombs but has no outer-walling
and no
cairn material of any description survives. The capstone is 2.6m in length,2.2m
in width and is .50m in depth. The chamber is very clean,save for a few small stones at
the back and is only .35m in height off the ground.
