You need to keep on this road as it winds its way through the countryside, after 2 km you will reach the Iskaheen graveyard. keep going for about another 1 km. On the left-hand side, you will see a wall with a nameplate with “Morton house” on it. Park at the top of the lane here.
At this point, there is a lane going down the hill. Walk down this lane for 200 metres on the left you will see a thicket of trees and bushes this is where you will find the tomb.
Morton God Dolmen is the largest portal tomb (dolmen) in Inishowen. The capstone probably weighs around 30 tons. It was originally referred to as a Druid’s alter and it was
thought that it was used for sacrifices or some other Druid rituals.
But these monuments actually date from far earlier, around about 5000 years ago, marked burial places and probably even predating the times of the Druids, who existed about 2000 years ago.
At the base of the tomb, there appear to be traces of a cairn.
