The Inchincurka wedge tomb stands near to
the crossroads of the same name. The gallery itself seems largely intact and is
covered by two roofstones. About 3m long, the height of the
enclosed gallery drops from 0.9m at the west to 0.25m at the eastern end. The tomb itself was very overgrown
at the time of our visit, brambles and weeds filled the gallery and grew
thickly on the roof slabs, it was originally buried in a mound measuring 10.3 x
4m, but we could not see any traces of this during our visit.
Whilst it was impossible to see into the tomb, much less enter it, the southern side was relatively weed free and could be seen to be comprised of more than one row of orthostats, the roofslabs being supported by the inner stones only. Two flat slabs span the sidewalls on either side of the western aperture forming a short facade.
