The wedge tomb at Glantane is in very poor
condition, it stands in a field about 100m to the north of the
stone circle. Two of the inner side wall orthostats remain and these, together
with two stones at the west, support the remaining roof slab. To the north and
south stand single stones with their axes parallel to the side wall orthostats,
they are probably the only remnants of the second, outer wall of side slabs that is
common in tombs of this type. A small stone stands upright between the eastern
ends of the wall slabs, possibly the remains of a jamb stone separator wall
between the western and eastern gallery sections.
The remaining chamber section was very low, roughly about half a metre high, and there were no visible remains of the covering mound.
