Inside the Tungadale souterrain
Inside the Tungadale souterrain
The Tungadale souterrain is part of a much bigger bronze age construction, consisting of what appear to be two virtually underground houses built of stone and terraced into the hillside. Its entrance is through a wall from the inside of one of these 'houses' and it runs a considerable distance underground. Even with a torch, and there being a bit of natural light coming in through a hole in the roof after ten feet or so, an immunity from claustrophobia is useful if you want to be bold enough to crawl right to the end.
