Dun Vlargveg

Stone Fort / Dun


Visited: May 23, 2016

Just two kilometres north of Dunan an Aisilidh at the tip of the Braes peninsula, and just north of the mouth of the Ollach River, stands Dun Vlargveg, which consists of a stone wall positioned along the top of a rock outcrop overlooking a cliff-girt promontory.

This wall is almost twenty metres in length, and its outer facing rises to three courses in places. Canmore states that Dun Vlargveg is connected to the mainland by a natural rock arch, but the topography is so steep that I dared not descend from the neighbourhood of the wall towards the level grassy area to confirm this. I would suggest that safety ropes would be required by those wishing to make the descent, which is down steep grass on which a slip could well prove fatal.
