It's easy to see why Dundurn was chosen as the site of a fort, as it rises steeply from the flat ground around it making it easy to defend. The slopes are littered with stones that are from the fort's walls, which have now tumbled from their original position on the flat summit.

The views from the top are stunning, and show further it's strategic importance, offering a sweeping vista of the wide flood plain of the River Earn below, and covering several major mountain passes.
