Kilpheder Wheelhouse

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


The privately-funded excavation of Kilpheder in 1952 by Tom Lethbridge with the help of a local skipper helped bring about an awareness of this class of monument.

Sadly, there is little to be seen at the site now other than the tops of some wall courses.

Access. Drive NW along the track from Cille Phaidair village until you reach a crossroads. Park here. Continue walking NW for about 200m. The site is in a mound on your right.
