The villagers of Auchenblae still refer to this site as fort as I found out at the shop in the village. They seemed very proud of this beautiful place, quite right as it is!

The site is to east of the village surrounded by minor roads. I jumped the fence at the south junction. As is normal with this type of site three sides of the fort have steeps whilst the entrance, in the north east, is relatively flat.
