Tronach Point

Cliff Fort


From the Green Castle at Portknockie I walked the 11/2 miles westwards to Tronach Point along the well looked after coastal path. This is the same path that is a shambles further east at Cleaved Head, Macduff. I always find it strange that different reigons look after things in different ways, but that's another matter!

Nothing much now remains of the Iron Age fort except that it's defences where mostly natural sheer cliff face. Entrance from the coast depended on the tide being in or out, and even then landing would be some achievement considering the bay is full of dangerous rocks. Several dangerous paths track up and down steep grassy banks next to some severe drops. Not for the faint hearted.
