|Although clearly not a hillfort (as it's not on a hill!) this site is typical of a type of monument found in Glen Lyon (and also nearby, see Queen's View). Variously described as forts, ring forts and homesteads, they are curious sites that certainly appear to be defensive. Massive walls, in this case between 3 and 4 metres thick, and their location below mountain passes into and out of Glen Lyon seem to suggest a defensive use for them originally.
