Scope and Content "Dun Mor is a massively constructed dun situated on the lip of a crag that falls away precipitously on the N and NW to the Breakachy Burn. It stands within a larger walled enclosure backing onto the cliff-edge. The dun itself measures about 24m from NNE to SSW by 16m transversely, within a massive wall" - Atlas of Hillforts, 2016. The track shown L to R along the bottom of the photo leads from Leanassie/Breakachy (to the R, i.e. E) towards Struy in Strathglass (to the L, i.e. W). This probably represents the original route from Strathglass & "the West" to Beauly, avoiding the Kilmorack gorge.
