|Description ||Site in Skåne Sweden: This passage grave is described by Christopher Tilley in "The Dolmens and Passage Graves of Sweden - an Introduction and Guide" as the best preserved passage grave in Sweden and from what others I have seen I think he is correct. The mound is 2.5 metres high and 25 metres in diameter.|

| Yes, he is quite right. Other passage graves like Ramshög and Carlshögen have also preserved some parts of the dry walling, but are less complete/accessible. Gillhög really is the most complete passage grave in Sweden, the perfectly preserved dry walling for example is simply stunning. |
