Ground Survey

Date 20 June 2011 - 21 June 2011

Event ID 963279

Category Recording

Type Ground Survey


A detailed topographic survey of the dun at Castle Dounie in Knapdale was undertaken 20–21 June 2011. The survey suggested that the 'straight joint' noted by previous surveyors in the S elevation in fact represents a second entrance, blocked and coursed over by later reconstruction.
