About

Join us on a guided walk around of one of Ireland's oldest civilizations. This site has it all; a rare Horned Dual Court Tomb, Stone Circles, Cairn Kerb Stones, Wedge Tombs and cultivated Blackthorn Hedgerows.

While you embrace the site you will revel in the history of High Kings & Giants and how giant’s DNA still runs through the local population.

Take a guide walk through an ancient site that hosts stone circles, a rare horned wedge tomb, cultivated blackthorn hedgerows and a Giants Grave.

Learn about the people who used to live there and the importance of this site.

While moving through its history you will learn High Kings Colla from the 3rd Century who are buried there and how their blood line came from the race of giants. And how this bloodline still exists today.

While you are here you will have stunning views of the Sperrin's and the surrounding area, once your guided tour is complete you are free to stay onsite and soak up the views or you can travel to several local sites to continue your journey on your own.
