Scope and Content Fort at Dumyat Hill, Stirling The fort is built on the SW slope of Dumyat Hill. It has good views over the Forth and to Stirling. Steep crags form natural defences to the E so most of the man-made defences are to the W. There was more than one phase of construction. This is a plan of the fort. The crags protect most of the E and S sides with two ramparts built to protect the N and W. The entrance is to the W. The later fort, built inside, consists of a single wall and is linked to the older defences by a second wall It is possible that the name Dumyat originally meant the fort itself rather than the hill. It might mean Dun Myat or Dun of the Maeatae, who were the local tribe. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
