Dun Sgurabhal

Stone Fort / Dun


We parked just the north of the dun at Sgurabhal near a series of pens and built up shore line. A and B approached from East and I climbed up on the North West.

It was reasonably cloudy and luckily hardly any wind, it easy to imagine the full lash of an Atlantic wind, we'd find the Atlantic wind a few days later.

Traces of the gallery can be seen north east and west, inside the site is the bulk of the fallen stones. The outer wall has all but gone probably made into dykes. A and B found the most likely entrance in the east.

Stunning views to South Uist, Fuday, Eriskay and the rest of Barra.

A nice way to start the day.
