A view from afar – 29.5.12

I wanted to visit St Clement’s church as it was another Historic Scotland site to knock off the list and is well worth a visit in its own right.

Rodelpark stone fort is easily seen from the church perched high up on the nearby hill.

Sophie and Karen were not feeling too good (this was the first indication that we were all soon to suffer from a ’24 hour bug’) so I decided against climbing up to the fort for a closer look.
I am sure the views from the top would be fab!

Excellent views of the church at Rodel from this Dun, which is at the top of the small hill immediately to it's north.

Very little remains of it, although there are traces of the walls (including hints of mural cells) and an external wall creating an enclosure around the Dun and the summit of the hill it sits on.
