On 16 September 1943, A Graham (RCAHMS) wrote the following note:

'There is said to be a fort near the north end of Comar Wood, and somewhere to the west of the footpath that rises from the Cannich-Fasnakyle road to the Cannich-Glencannich road and near its junction with the latter. The fort could not be found, but when the Inventory survey is made it should be looked for again - if possible at a season when the bracken is down'

This note probably refers to the dun identified by Forestry Commission staff in 2010, since the path referred to is situated only about 500m to the NE (OS Inverness (Mainland) Sheet XXVII, 1876), and there are no other likely candidates in the local area.

Information from RCAHMS (GFG) 13 December 2013.
