NH 904 803. Dun, Tarrel: This dun occupies the summit of a rocky knoll overlooking the seashore. The dun wall has been destroyed on the seaward side, but elsewhere it measures up to 3.7m in thickness and encloses an area which now measures 9.5m by 6.7m.

RCAHMS 1979, visited 1977.

The dun at NH 9046 8034 is oval. The rocky knoll on which it is sited is connected on the landward side by a narrow isthmus of rock. Overall the dun measures 11.0m E-W by 7.0m; little remains of the wall except on the approachable W side where a disfigured wall or revetment stands 0.9m high. On the other three sides the position is naturally defended. Surveyed at 1:2500.
