Black Meldon Fort



Best approach from the north-west side. There are a number of spots to park a car on the road in the glen, but the one by the disused mineworkings is easiest. The ground is dense heather, so not easily accessible to those with mobility issues. The fortlet wall is clearly a discernible oval, about 20m on its longest axis. I was confused that I couldn't work out where the entrance had been. Excellent views all round, particularly to the south, where ancient field patterns and drove roads are clearly visible.
