Dun Gleann Udalain

Stone Fort / Dun


Visited 26.7.13

Right next to the A890 – just to the north of Auchtertyre.
Parking is available next to site

Not much to report really. The site is a small rock outcrop covered in ferns and heather. Therefore not a lot to see. At least it is easy to get to!

Canmore states:
‘Summounting a rocky knollis the foundation of an oval Dun. It measures 23m by 13m, with an outer wall face visible in the debris for most of the perimeter except in the west where the wall has mostly slipped away. The inner face is nowhere visible but the spread of debris suggests a wall thickness of between 3.5m and 4m. The entrance is not evident but may have been in the west at the easiest approach’.
