The focal point of the site is the presence of a court tomb which dates back to the 3rd millennium BC and is considered the finest examples of it’s type in the country. There is also a stone circle close by to the trail with a cashel, wedge tomb and souterrain in adjoining lands which is accessible from the trail.
