Dundarg Fort sits beside a ruined chapel and castle. Ditches and banks protect the fort at the southern boundary. The castle extended one of the ditches to make a moat. Within in the fort post holes can be found. Once again superb all round views of the Moray Firth.

Going west from New Aberdour take the first minor road north. When this road ends turn west and stop at the next tarred road north. The road is marked private so I pulled my car into the verge to avoid any complaint. From here walk the 1/4 mile to Dundarg House. The path to the east leads to ruined castle and chapel, to the west leads to the fort and the beach.
