Balix Lower Court Tomb: The White Rocks

This court tomb with a V-shaped forecourt leading into a (probable) two-chambered gallery which ends in a high-pointed backstone.

An unusual feature is that the court springs from the jambs, rather than the jambs being within the curve of the court. This opens into a chamber, now undivided but perhaps originally divided into two parts. The cairn is much robbed but it may have been trapezoidal in shape.

The monument is an interesting fusion of court-tomb, wedge-tomb and stone circle.
