Chun Quiot

Chun Quiot
A very pretty chambered tomb, Chun Quoit stands on a bleak and very atmospheric northwest facing slope of a natural rise just over a mile from the sea and a few miles away from both Lanyon Quoit and the Men-an-Tol in an area rich in cairns, standing stones and barrow. It consists of four upright stones about a metre and a half in height, three of which support a fairly circular 2-3 metre wide capstone. Early antiquarians in the 18th century reported the remains of a circular cairn of about 10-12 metres diameter around the chamber with an outer kerb of upright stones. This remnants of this mound can be seen as cobbles poking out from the grass with an occasional kerbstone (foreground left of picture) still in situ.
