The RCAHMS record concedes that some of the walling could be Iron Age, though the dun's essentially medieval. The landscape does cry out for something to be on top of these strange features (Dun Ara looks rather like the neighbouring lump in the photo - a flat area raised up suddenly). The dun was covered in bluebells and other flowers when I visited in spring.
