NH 252 507: Galleried Dun, Carnoch. A walled oval enclosure on a glacial mound, measuring some 20 m E-W by 16 m N-S. The wall is about 4 m thick, thickening to N where there are traces of side chambers on either side of the entrance. It has been much jumbled by 19th century excavations; the finds are locally believed to have been sent to the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland, but the latter have been unable to trace them.
