Type Field Visit


On the summit of Dun Cul Bhuirg stands a fort which covers an area 45.0m by 35.0 m. The walls are now visible only as stoney banks around the eastern and southern edges of the summit. A circular structure is visible at the eastern limit. This structure is approximately 5.0m in diameter although it is hard to identify as the result of extensive damage caused by archaeological excavations.

The summit of Dun Cul Bhuirg has an Admiralty hydrographic triangulation point, which consists of a circular brass plaque.

Excavations on both the ramparts and the structure suggested that the site had been constructed and occupied at some point between 100BC and 300AD.
