Dun Aonghasa

Stone Fort / Dun


Extremely impressive fortification. Dun Aonghasa is semi circular as it backs on to a naseauatingly high cliff. There are several concentric walls and a chevaux de fris (sp?), an area of upstanding stones to prevent one from riding one's horse toward the fort. Shame about the victorian butresses. The ground within the enclosure slopes towards the cliff. Posted by the fear
