Hill of Tara


Recently on my first visit to Tara(25/07/04) I was struck by the similarity of the locale with Dunadd in Kilmartin Glen.
On both sites there is an amazing 360 degree vista. And this without having climbed to any great elevation.
Both Tara and Dunadd are quite unobtrusive as you approach them.
This underestimation of their power and height over the landscape helps to add to the sense of surprise plus majesty and magic when one surveys all lying below.

It would seem to me that those Gaels who chose Dunadd as their base were emulating their ancestral power base at Tara.
