Fell of Barhullion

Hillfort

Fieldnotes

I visited the Fell of Barhullion fort while investigating the shy and retiring Cup and Ring Marked rocks on Blairbuy Farm. Most of these are covered by turf or gorse so the visible remains of the fort come as a relief.
Canmore ID 62757 (go to Links) has a good aerial picture of the fort and a detailed description of the layout. They suggest the placement of a Chevaux de Frise, an anti- cavalry device consisting of randomly placed vertically set stones.
