NN 1270 7012 A detailed topographical survey of the surviving remains of a late prehistoric or early historic fort at Dun Deardail was carried out on 9 February 2014. The survey allowed the creation of a digital terrain model, contour-based plans and oblique terrain models of the site within its landscape setting, which will be utilised to inform future conservation and management of the monument by Forestry Commission Scotland. It was one of a group of six such surveys carried out on Forestry Commission Scotland sites in February 2014. The other sites were at Castle Greg, Craig Phadrig, Sean Craig, Round Dounan and Torr Dhuin.
