Barclodiad y Gawres restored Neolithic burial chamber (c 2500 BCE) is situated on the Mynydd Mawr headland overlooking Cable Bay, or Porth Trecastell, on the southwestern coast of the Isle of Anglesey.

The cruciform passage grave, six of whose stones are carved with geometric designs, was excavated in 1952, following which a domed concrete roof was added and the entrance passage was rebuilt.

The site is in the care of Cadw and, to prevent against vandalism, the interior is only open by appointment.
