I was expecting something less, however .... really interesting, like others visited perhaps more famous. There is no ticket, no queue. It would deserve some didactic information to help the visitor to know, but we know today there is the INTERNET.

There are 3 Domus dating back to the pre-Nuragic period of the late Neolithic. They used to reproduce the same structure inside the tomb as the houses of the time, placing objects and food to accompany and "comfort" the dead on their otherworldly "journey". Small archaeological site with free admission, well signposted, with a nearby parking area. A sign provides the historical explanation. It is worth the visit only if you are already passing through the area.

An impressive necropolis. If you are agile, you should definitely crawl into the main tomb to be impressed by the interior.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
