TheCaptain visited on 26th Jun 2005 - their rating: Cond: 3 Amb: 3 Access: 3 There are three allée couvertes here on the hilltop on the ridge overlooking the river Dourla, and beside the busy GR37 footpath. They are signposted from all around, and are several hundred metres walk uphill and along the ridge from a little car park. They are all suffering badly from neglect and vandalism, which is a great shame as I was reading a book from 25 years ago which says that they have only recently been discovered and are in a wonderful condition and almost complete. I guess it doesn't help that the rock is a very splitty dark grey slate type rock, which now it is exposed takes little to break it. While I was up there, many people walked past, many kicking the stones as they went, with children (and adults) jumping up and down on them. This seems to be a V shaped dolmen rather than a pure allée couverte with its chamber widening from less than a metre wide to greater than two metres wide for the main part. Approximately 12 metres long, it has three capstones in place, and faces approximately west at 210°. It is suffering very badly, not only from graffitti, but also official damage in the form of footpath sign paintings and markings. There is a separate cell at the back, with an entry doorstone, at an angle, making a triangular entrance.

There are three allée couvertes here on the hilltop on the ridge overlooking the river Dourla, and beside the busy GR37 footpath. They are signposted from all around, and are several hundred metres walk uphill and along the ridge from a litle car park.

They are all suffering badly from neglect and vandalism, which is a great shame as I was reading a book from 25 years ago which says that they have only recently been discovered and are in a wonderful condition and almost complete. I guess it doesnt help that the rock is a very splitty dark grey slate type rock, which now it is exposed takes little to break it.

Liscuis 3 seems to be a V shaped dolmen rather than a pure allée couverte with its chamber widening from less than a metre wide to greater than two metres wide for the main part.

Approximately 12 metres long, it has three capstones in place, and faces approximately west at 210°. It is suffering very badly, not only from graffitti, but also official damage in the form of footpath sign paintings and markings.

There is a seperate cell at the back, with an entry doorstone, at an angle, making a triangular entrance.

While I was up there, many people walked past, many kicking the stones as they went, with children (and adults) jumping up and down on them.

There was also an amusing moment as a group of 3 geordie girls in tight vests passed by, talking about things I am sure they wouldn't have had they known I was English. T*** oot for the lads!

Beware there is a confusion between Liscuis 2 and Liscuis 3 in the photos, but anyway, that's not so important.
