Obviously people were using the hilltop before the Iron Age fort was built: this is a small Bronze age cairn on the westernmost cliff edge, on the slope outside the hillfort. According to Coflein it's only 2m across and 0.4m high, and is made of small angular stones overlying a quarried out 'scoop'. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
