Dunan Diarmid, Loch Duich

Stone Fort / Dun


'Drive by' 26.7.13

Easily seen from the road as a large 'pudding shaped' rock outcrop at the end of Loch Duich.
Graet location for a Dun/Fort.

Canmore states:
'Dunan Diarmid, the remains of a dun occupying the level summit of an isolated rocky knoll. Oval on plan, the dun measures 24.5m E-W by 16.0m N-S within a wall c. 2.5m thick, reduced to a stony scarp with a few stones of the outer face visible intermittently around the W half. A deep hollow at the modern S approach probably denotes the mutilated entrance. In the interior in the NE, is a modern enclosure, 6.0m E-W by 7.0m N-S within a wall 0.8m thick'
